A bomb blast in Jerusalem has left two Israeli's dead and 34 others injured. The bomb, planted by the Palestine Liberation Organisation ripped through a crowded shopping street on Wednesday (19 September)
SYNOPSIS: The bomb had been concealed in the basket of a bicycle left in the busy Ben Yehuda Road. It exploded as police were around the corner inspecting several other suspect parcels. The blast caught everyone by surprise.
Two Israelis closest to the ??? were killed. Of the thirty four others injured, five were said to be seriously hurt. A fleet of ambulances ferried the injured to hospital.
A short time after the blast the Palestine Liberation Organisation claimed responsibility and a search by police revealed another bomb in the area. It was defused by army sappers.
In the ancient Port City of Jaffa, south of Tel Aviv, another bomb was defused only a minute before it was due to explode. The device had been planted in a parked car. The latest spate of bomb incidents came just two days before the start of the traditional Jewish Holiday of Rosh Hashanah.
