In the aftermath of Friday's suicide bombing in Tel Aviv, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon demands action from the Palestinian Authority, saying it must " wipe out terrorist groups" for diplomatic talks to continue.

Four Israelis died in the bombings. Sunday, Sharon threatened to freeze political discussions with the Palestinians unless they crack down on militant groups, adding that Israel would return to using military force in the area if the crackdown did not happen.
