An explosion tore through a bus in Jayloomia on Monday and set a second bus on fire, wounding 16 people in what an Israeli official said was a bombing. Israeli media said a man who was seriously injured and not carrying any identification papers was under investigation on suspicion he was responsible. Police initially said they were looking at the possibility that a technical malfunction caused the fire on the Hebron road south-west, close to the Green Line, but a spox for the mayor told Reuters:

It was small, but it was definitely a bomb.
