Bomb explosion hits Jerusalem bus

At least 20 people have been injured, some seriously, after a bomb explosion hit a bus in central Jerusalem, Israeli officials say.

The bomb had been left in a bag by the side of the road near the central bus station, police said.

Dozens of ambulances converged on the scene near the entrance to the city, and police sealed off the area.

Jerusalem suffered a spate of bus bombings between 2000 and 2004 but attacks have stopped in recent years.
