Injuries reported in attack on bus in northern Israel

Wednesday, October 16, 2002

JERUSALEM -- A bus was attacked near the northern Israeli town of Beit Shean on Tuesday and four people were wounded, police and rescue workers said.

There were conflicting reports about whether the incident involved a shooting or a bombing attack.

Rescue services spokesman Yeroham Mandola said four people suffered light injuries due to shooting. The initial, urgent police report referred to a bombing, but spokesmen later said the nature of the attack was "unclear."

Beit Shean is located about 50 miles north of Jerusalem.
