Light Rail Bomb Scare Also Affecting Streets

The discovery of a suspected pipe bomb, Friday morning, at the Mount Herzl station of the Jerusalem Light Rail, has caused Jerusalem police to close the road between the Kiryat Hayovel and Bayit Vagan neighborhoods in addition to light-rail traffic beyond the Beit Hakerem neighborhood.

The closures have caused traffic congestion. Motorists are advised to avoid the area.
