Terror in Jerusalem: Teen killed in Attacks at Bus Stops

A 16-year-old boy has been killed and 22 other people have been wounded in two saperate bomb attacks at bus stops in Jerusalem, Israeli police say.

The explosions happened at two busy areas on the outskirts of the city as people were heading to work.

Israeli media said the teenager who died was an Israeli-Canadian religious student named Aryeh Shtsupak hy"d

Israel's internal security minister said at one scene that this was "an attack we haven't seen in a long time".

A return to the use of explosives in Jerusalem makes it one of the most significant attacks of its kind in years.

No group has so far said it was behind the blasts. However, the Palestinian militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad both praised the perpetrators of what they referred to as the "operation".
