Tel Aviv Bus Bomber Indicted

The State Attorneys’ Office plans to file an indictment Wednesday morning against an Israeli Arab man for bombing a bus in Tel Aviv. The attack in late November wounded 27 people, three of them seriously.

Police believe the young man, a resident of Taibe, was recruited by a terrorist cell affiliated with Hamas and Islamic Jihad. He is believed to have left bombs on the bus and detonated one using a cell phone.
