Suicide Bomber Strikes in Netanya, Israel

A terrorist (you won't see that word in the AP story) killed two people, and wounded about thirty, in a suicide attack at a mall in Netanya.

Islamic Jihad's armed wing, the Al-Quds Battalions, claimed responsibility for the attack. The bomber was identified as 18-year-old Ahmed Abu Halil from a village near Tulkarm. Tulkarm was one of the West Bank cities which was recently handed over to PA.
Update 2: Laurence Simon has pictures from Netanya, and the Ceasefire is nowhere in sight (it's not here, either).
