Israeli security forces may have in custody, the terrorists who bombed a crowded bus stop area Wednesday afternoon in Jerusalem.
Sources in the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization claimed that two of its members were arrested Wednesday night in connection with the blast.
One 56-year-old woman, a British tourist, died of wounds sustained in the Jerusalem bombing, and some 50 others were injured.
The blast tore holes through the windows in the front half of a massive Egged city bus that was just pulling away from a stop next to a telephone stand. The bomb was planted in a briefcase that was left beside the phone stand.
Eyewitnesses said they saw a young man place the briefcase beside the phones and then leave the area. At least one of the witnesses made a phone call to alert security personnel who immediately blocked others from approaching the scene, thereby saving numerous lives.
Khaled Jaradat and Tarek Ka’adan were picked up in Jenin by Palestinian Authority security forces said to have been working in coordination with Israeli security personnel.
There was no comment from IDF officials.
