Two explosions at two bus stops near entrances to Jerusalem on Wednesday morning left at least 13 people hurt, including two critically, police and medics said.
The first explosion occurred close to the main entrance of Jerusalem in Givat Shaul, shortly after 7 a.m., peak commuter hour. 11 people were injured in the blast, including two critically and two seriously, medical officials said.
The victims were taken to the Shaare Zedek and Hadassah Ein Kerem hospitals in the city.
A second blast occurred shortly after 7:30 a.m., at the Ramot junction, another entrance to Jerusalem. At least two people were lightly hurt by shrapnel in the second explosion, medics said.
The explosions were thought to have been caused by an explosive device left in a bag, according to initial Hebrew-language media reports.
Security services were sweeping the area in an attempt to find any suspects connected to the explosion.
Police said they had closed off the Route 1 highway following the first blast.
This is a developing story.
