An eight-year-old boy was badly injured this evening when an explosive charge went off near a bus stop in a Jerusalem suburb. He was identified as Alon Hananya.

The incident occurred in Neve Yaacov, the northernmost part of the post 1967 new Jewish suburbs ringing the capital.

Police said the bomb was hidden in rocks near the bus stop.
