2 Israelis hurt in fire bomb attack on car in Jerusalem


JERUSALEM — Israeli police say two people were hurt when a fire bomb was thrown at a passing car in Jerusalem.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said a woman was seriously wounded. She said another person was also hurt, probably as a result of the woman's car crashing into another vehicle.

She said it was too early to tell who had carried out the attack, but that similar attacks in the past had been carried out by Palestinians.

Suspected Jewish extremists set fire to a Palestinian home in the West Bank, burning a toddler to death on Friday.

On Thursday, an ultra-Orthodox Jew stabbed revelers at a gay pride parade in Jerusalem, wounding 6 people, including a 16-year-old girl who died of her wounds Sunday.
