Funerals were held Wednesday for victims of Monday’s bus bombing in northern Israel. As efforts continued to identify all the dead, the head of the Abu Kabir Forensics Institute, Yehuda Hiss, said the severity of injuries sustained by the victims made identification difficult. Following earlier revisions in the number of Israeli fatalities, Hiss said there were a total of 14 victims of the attack, Israel Radio reported.
