(AP) JERUSALEM – A female Palestinian suicide bomber blew herself up at a bus stop in Jerusalem on Wednesday, killing one person and seriously wounding at least three others, Israeli authorities said.
The explosion occurred at a busy intersection in French Hill, a Jewish neighborhood close to the West Bank. The neighborhood has been attacked by suicide bombers in the past.
Israeli rescue workers reported one dead and three others with serious wounds. Others suffered lighter wounds.
It was the first Palestinian suicide bombing since an attack in the southern city of Beersheba on Aug. 31 that killed 16 people.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
