More Terror in Israel
There was another devastating suicide attack in Israel on Oct 4, killing at least 19 people.

A Palestinian suicide bomber blew herself up in a busy restaurant in the Israeli city of Haifa on Saturday, killing 19 people including three children and sparking new calls in Israel to exile Yasser Arafat.

"Suddenly we heard a tremendous explosion. We saw smoke pour out of the restaurant and the windows shattered," said witness Navon Hai. "There wasn't much we could do. Families were dead around the tables, there were children without limbs."

At least Reuters got the headline right for once: "Palestinian Woman Suicide Bomber Kills 19 in Israel" and not the usual "Violence Kills One Palestinian, Assorted Others."
