An extremist Jewish group claimed responsibility for a West Bank blast that wounded 15 Palestinian students. The cause of Wednesday’s explosion was not immediately clear, but some reports said it could have occurred when a student picked up a makeshift device in the schoolyard. An unknown group, Revenge of the Infants, said it carried out the blast to avenge the murder of Jewish children at the hands of Palestinian terrorists. But police said the claim was unlikely.
