Update: 21 wounded in Jerusalem bus bombing

Twenty-one people were wounded in an explosion on Monday, which hit Egged bus line 12 on Derekh Hevron and Moshe Baram Street in the southeast of Jerusalem, not far from Kibbutz Ramat Rachel. Police later confirmed it was indeed a bombing attack, in apparently the first bus bombing of the current terror wave.

Large Magen David Adom (MDA) and police forces rushed to the site. Police say 21 people were wounded in the attack, apparently 16 of them with physical wounds and the rest suffering from shock. At least two were seriously wounded and seven were moderately wounded, with the rest lightly wounded. Rescue forces evacuated the wounded to the hospital.
