8 Die, Dozens Wounded In Tel Aviv Suicide Bombing

Ih the first suicide bombing since Hamas took control of the Palestinian Authority, at least 8 persons are dead and dozens are wounded after a suicide bomber walked into a restaurant in the former central bus station in Tel Aviv and blew himself up this morning.

A Hamas spokesman claimed the bombing was "an act of self-defense" in response to Israeli aggression.

The bombing was reportedly condemned by PA President Mahmoud Abbas, however.
