J'lem police chief: 6 bombings thwarted in 2005

Six Palestinian suicide bombings were thwarted in Jerusalem last year, Jerusalem Police Chief Cmdr. Ilan Franco revealed Thursday. The would-be bombers were caught both en route to the city and in the city itself, the police chief said during an annual Jerusalem police briefing. In addition, 10 would-be Palestinian attackers were arrested in the villages in the West Bank the day before they planned to set out to Jerusalem to carry out their attacks, Franco added.
