30 injured in bomb blast
At least 30 people have been injured, some seriously, after a bomb explosion hit a bus in central Jerusalem today, Israeli officials say.
The bomb had been left in a bag by the side of the road near the central bus station, police said.
Police and dozens of ambulances converged on the area, in West Jerusalem.
Witnesses said the force of the blast shook buildings over a wide area.
A correspondent for AFP news agency at the scene said people were lying on the ground covered in blood and many cars and buses had shattered windows.
Hospital officials told Israel’s Channel 2 television that four of the injured were in serious condition, and another two were moderately hurt. (BBC)
