A bomb exploded at a crowded bus stop Wednesday in central Jerusalem, wounding at least 25 people in what appeared to be the first militant attack in the city in several years.
The blast could be heard throughout Jerusalem and blew out the windows of two crowded buses.
Rescuers were seen removing bloodied people from the area on stretchers.
Israel's national rescue service said 25 people were wounded, including 15 seriously. No deaths were reported.
Meir Hagid, one of the bus drivers, said he heard a loud explosion as he drove by the site, located near the main entrance to Jerusalem and its central bus station.
