Five Injured in Bus Blast

Five bus commuters were slightly injured when an explosive charge went off in a bus travelling from Petah Tikva to Tel Aviv Monday morning. The injured persons were all released after being given first aid treatment in a near by hospital.

The No. 51 bus was packed, with passengers standing in the aisle when the charge exploded in the rear of the vehicle as it passed a busy intersection at the comer of the Petah Tikvah and Haifa Roads and Shaul Hamelech Avenue.
