Bomb Safely Defused in Bus Station

An Arab street sweeper from the West Bank averted a possible disaster at Tel Aviv’s central bus station Tuesday night, when he called the police bomb squad to examine a suspicious looking package he spotted on the sidewalk outside the terminal.

The object, described by sappers as a “medium-size” bomb, was safely defused. It had been wrapped in newspapers and set to detonate during the evening rush hour.
