At least 15 people were killed and 51 injured in a suicide bombing Tuesday night at a pool hall south of Tel Aviv. Hamas claimed responsibility for the explosion in Rishon le-Zion, which came just before Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon began meeting with President Bush at the White House. The blast collapsed the building, burying victims in the rubble.
