Two 18 year old American tourists were lightly injured on Tuesday after someone threw stones at their bus.

The incident occurred next to the Dung Gate, the entrance to the Old City which is closest to the Western Wall plaza. The two were traveling in the red double-decker Egged Bus 99, a sightseeing bus that makes a big loop around Jerusalem's major tourist attractions.

MDA paramedics treated the two girls at the scene. Police opened an investigation into the incident and canvassed the area to try to find the perpetrators.
