The Tel Aviv district attorney's office filed an indictment with the Tel Aviv Magistrates Court on Monday against Mahmoud Abu Anza, 24, from Tel Sheva.
Abu Anza was driving the car that brought bombing perpetrator Sami Harimi to Bat Yam bus 240. He is being accused of ferrying illegal border crossers, among other offenses.
The passengers of the bus narrowly escaped the December 22 bombing when
an alert passenger informed the driver of a suspected package on the
bus. The driver evacuated the bus while another passenger looking inside
the bag found what he said looked like a pressure cooker with a red
wire coming out of it.
