Funerals held for victims of bus accident

Victims of the horrific bus accident that killed six children and their teacher and injured at least 30 on Thursday were laid to rest over the weekend as police continued their investigation.
The accident occurred Thursday morning when an Israeli-Arab driver smashed his truck into a Palestinian school bus north of Jerusalem. The bus had set out from a Palestinian school in Anata northeast of Jerusalem for a day trip, carrying around 60 children.
Officials blamed poor weather conditions for the accident. The driver of the truck remains injured at the Hadassah Har Hatzofim hospital in Jerusalem in moderate to serious condition. Police are waiting for his condition to improve to question him.
