A suicide bomber targets a Jerusalem bus, killing himself and seven others. A second explosion outside the city kills the presumed bomber but no one else. The attacks — coupled with an earlier fatal bombing in Hebron — precede a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas. Hear NPR's Linda Gradstein.
