Three people were injured in a rock throwing attack on a bus in Jerusalem late Sunday night.

The victims - a woman in her sixties, and two youths ages 18 and 16 - were traveling on the Number 3 bus and were heading towards Wadi al-Joz in eastern Jerusalem when their bus was pelted with rocks by Arab assailants.

The three were injured by shards of broken glass, and the two youths also suffered head wounds. The victims were transferred to Mount Scopus hospital for further treatment after receiving first aid.

Several other passengers were treated for shock at the scene.

In related news, two victims of last Wednesday's shooting attack in Tel Aviv showed significant improvements over the weekend.

32-year-old Haggai Klein, who threw objects at the terrorists in a desperate bid to end the slaughter, is well on the road to recovery, and is now listed in light condition.

Assaf Bar, who was also wounded in the attack, is similarly making a rapid recovery, hospital officials say.
