JERUSALEM ‚ÄĒ Strollers were scattered near the stricken bus, medics carried away children with blood-smeared faces and a baby girl died in a hospital before doctors could find her parents.
At least five children were among the 18 dead in Tuesday's homicide bombing by a Palestinian militant who blew himself up on a Jerusalem (search) bus. Forty children were among more than 100 people injured.
The attack was the 100th Palestinian homicide bombing against Israelis since the latest round of fighting began in September 2000. The youth of the victims stands out in that grim list, and the government said the choice of target was particularly cold-blooded.
"You have to remember the target of the attack, a moving bus bringing families who had been praying at the Western Wall (search)," said Dore Gold, a spokesman for the Israeli government.
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
