A 16-year-old American tourist, critically wounded in last week's suicide bombing in Tel Aviv, woke up on Tuesday for the first time since the explosion. Daniel Wultz, a high school student from Weston, Florida, was in Israel with his parents to visit relatives during Passover. He and his Israeli-born father, Tuly, were lunching when the 2.5kg (10 lb.) bomb detonated, killing nine people and wounding dozens. On Tuesday, Daniel regained consciousness, said Yael Tsubary, spokeswoman for Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital, where the youth is being treated. He is not yet able to speak, she said, but he can communicate with his eyes. Although the teenager's condition is still listed as critical, Tsubary said he is likely to recover.
