Suicide attacks kill nine


JERUSALEM: A Palestinian suicide bomber disguised as a religious Jew killed seven people on a Jerusalem bus yesterday, prompting Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to put off a White House trip to discuss a US-backed peace plan. 

Another suicide bomber struck soon afterwards at a nearby roadblock but killed only himself, taking the overall death toll to nine in a new spasm of bloodshed just hours after the highest-level Israeli-Palestinian talks for over two years.
