A 10-year-old Palestinian boy was caught trying to smuggle a bomb through a West Bank checkpoint. The Israeli army said a policewoman at the checkpoint outside Nablus searched the boy, who worked as a porter, after noticing wires jutting out of his bag. The bomb was safely detonated and the boy was taken away for questioning.
