    A CIVILIAN CAR STRUCK A LAND MINE ON A MINE ROAD IN A BUSY CENTRAL SECTION OF GAZA CITY YESTERDAY (SATURDAY).

    TWO ARABS TRAVELLING IN THE VEHICLE AND A BYSTANDER WERE KILLED INSTANTLY, AND THREE OTHER BYSTANDERS - ONE A 12 YEAR-OLD GIRL - WERE SERIOUSLY INJURED.

    JUST BEFORE THE EXPLOSION AN ISRAELI PATROL HAD CLASHED WITH A BAND OF ARMED MEN APPARENTLY PLANTING MINES IN THE AREA.

    THE CAR BLOWN UP HAD A PRIVATE GAZA REGISTRATION NUMBER, AND NEITHER THE CAR NOR ITS OCCUPANTS HAD ANY MILITARY CONNECTIONS.

    THE INCIDENT HAPPENED NOT FAR FROM THE CENTRE OF GAZA CITY ON A SIDEPASS BY A CEMETERY USED ONLY BY LOCAL CARS.

    AN ISRAELI ARMY SPOKESMAN SAID THAT THE TWO PEOPLE KILLED IN THE WRECKED CAR WERE FATHER AND SON.
