Bombs Explode in Jerusalem

Download PDF for this date

The chance discovery of a large explosive device near an open-air market south of Tel Aviv this morning averted what might have been a major disaster with injuries to civilians and possible loss of life. But two small bombs exploded in Jerusalem today.

One of them injured a woman at a bus stop in the suburb of Ramot. The other exploded in the French Hill area without causing casualties or damage.

Police in Tel Aviv credited a cleaning man on his early morning rounds at the market with the discovery of a large bomb. A second large bomb was found by police in a search of nearby buildings. Each bomb was timed to detonate during the peak shopping hours. Both were safely defused.
