Jerusalem bomb: Benjamin Netanyahu in security pledge


Israel's prime minister has pledged to act "aggressively and responsibly" to restore security after a bomb exploded at a bus stop in central Jerusalem.
One person was killed and more than 30 others were injured after the blast at a crowded bus stop in Jerusalem, http://bbc.in/fk6wW2 as reported by BBC News.
The city suffered a spate of bus bombings by Palestinian militants between 2000 and 2004 but attacks had stopped in recent years.
Benjamin Netanyahu said the attackers had sought to try the country's will.
"They are trying to test our will and our determination, and they will discover that this government and the army and the Israeli people have an iron will to defend the country," the prime minister said.
"Israel will act aggressively, responsibly and wisely to preserve the quiet and security that prevailed here over the past two years," he added.
