One person was killed and dozens injured in a terror attack this afternoon in central Jerusalem. The blast occurred on Jaffa Road, the same street where last Tuesday's shooting spree occurred and the same junction where a suicide bomber killed 15 in an explosion outside the Sbarro restaraunt last summer.

Police report a powerful explosion apparently operated by a suicide bomber. Two of the injured are in critical condition and four in serious condition. The remaining injured are slightly wounded.

Ha'aretz reports as many as thirty may have been injured in the blast.

Police have closed the area to traffic. Police report that among the injured are police officers serving in the area.
