Suicide Bomber Blows Self Up After Being Pushed Off Israeli Bus

A suicide bomber blew himself up Tuesday seconds after he was pushed off an Israeli bus near a northern West Bank settlement, police said.

The bus driver struggled with the assailant who tried to get on the bus at a stop outside the Jewish settlement of Mehola, police officer Meir Elyahu said. The bomber was pushed off the bus, where he detonated an explosive charge, killing himself, Elyahu said.

An army spokesman said there were no other casualties.
