A bomb exploded near two buses in Jerusalem today, wounding at least 25. Haaretz reports:

An apparent bomb exploded next to two public buses on Wednesday afternoon outside the International Convention Center, just opposite the central station in Jerusalem.

At least 25 people were wounded in the incident, four of them seriously....

It was not yet clear whether a suicide bomber was behind the attack. Bus No. 74 and No. 14 were reported as being hit.

Ynet is calling the bombing a "terror attack." The attack does not appear to have been a suicide bombing, and security forces are reportedly searching the area for other bombs.
