Suicide Bomber Kills Four in Netanya
3/04/01 - A man blew himself up as he mingled within a crowd of pedestrians in the Israeli coastal city of Netanya. At least four people were killed. This attack occurred only one day after the military wing of HAMAS announced that it had ten suicide bombers poised for strikes in Israel in order to undermine the incoming government of Ariel Sharon.
3/04/01 - Authorities suspect that the Real IRA (RIRA) was responsible for an early morning car bomb attack on the London offices of the BBC. According to reports, police initiated an immediate evacuation of the area following a telephone call warning of the bomb. The bomb (hidden in a taxi) detonated while bomb disposal technicians were attempting RSP. One man was injured in the attack.
2/22/01 - Two people were killed and at least four wounded by a car bomb blast near a commuter train station in the city of San Sebastian. Although no one has claimed credit for the attack, the methods used in the attack strongly suggest ETA.
2/16/01 – At least seven Serbs were killed and forty wounded by a bomb attack on a convoy of buses near the town of Podujevo. The bomb appears to have been concealed in the roadway and command detonated while the bus convoy was passing. This is one of several recent attacks directed at the Kosovo Serb minority by Albanian militants.
2/13/01 - As part of our research for Version 2.0 of the Bomb Countermeasures for Security Professionals CD-ROM, we are looking for the following items:
1. An example of an untrained security or first responding law enforcement officer who was injured or killed while trying to deactivate or move a suspect device. This example will be used to reinforce the importance of never touching or attempting to move a suspected bomb.
2. Photos of the markings or exterior construction of any mailings used for concealing mail bombs. These photos will be used to demonstrate mail bomb recognition clues and reinforce the importance of visual mail screening.
All photos submitted should be public domain. In most cases, photos entered into evidence for previous trials meet this definition. In appreciation for your support, we will provide your unit with a complimentary copy of the new Version 2.0 when it is ready for release. If you can assist, contact us by e-mail at: email@example.com.
