A female suicide bomber detonated explosives at the entrance to a Jerusalem supermarket Friday afternoon, according to police and rescue workers. The blast occurred at a strip mall in Kiryat Yovel, a working class Jewish neighborhood in southeastern part of the city. Dozens were hurt, including many inside the supermarket, according to police and rescue workers.

“I understood that the guard did not let the terrorist in, and they were blown up together,” said Moshe, a witness who spoke to Israel Radio, who gave only his first name.
