JERUSALEM (AP) _ An explosion went off Tuesday as a bus was traveling near a Jewish settlement in the West Bank, killing one person and injuring several more, police said.
A roadside device detonated as a bus was passing by near the Emmanuel settlement, and shooting then followed, said police spokesman Rafi Yaffe. One person was killed and more than five injured, he said.
An ambush on a bus in the same area Dec. 12 killed 10 Israelis.
A spokesman for the Magen David Adom ambulance service, Yeruham Mandola, said 20 people were injured, five seriously.
Additional ambulances were rushing to the scene, he said.
Israel's Channel Two television said the injured were not only from the bus, but from a vehicle that was driving ahead of it.
