Israel embassy spokesman corrects self on Jerusalem blast

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The spokesman for Israel's embassy in Washington issued a message on Twitter correcting his earlier assertion that a blast in Jerusalem on Wednesday was a suicide bus attack.

"Correction: bomb in Jerusalem not on bus and apparently not a suicide attack," embassy spokesman Jonathan Peled said in a Twitter message.
