Twenty-eight people injured in Monday's suicide bombing in Tel Aviv are still hospitalized and at least two of them are still fighting for their lives, including a 16-year-old tourist from the United States. Nine people were killed in the bombing. The bomber, also 16, is believed to be the youngest suicide bomber yet. Samir Salim Hammed was from a town near Jenin. Israeli troops arrested his father. The family emptied their home of all furniture immediately after the attack for fear that the army would demolish it, as is often the case in suicide bombings. According to reports however, the army was not immediately preparing to destroy the building.
