SECRETARY-GENERAL, EXPRESSING DEEP REGRET, CONDEMNS

ANOTHER BOMBING IN JERUSALEM


The following statement was issued today by the Spokesman for Secretary-General Kofi Annan:

The Secretary-General has learned with deep regret that another bombing has occurred in Jerusalem, causing loss of life and further human suffering. He condemns such acts, which have the obvious purpose of derailing the peace process. Those who espouse terrorism and violence must not be allowed to stand in the way of the pursuit of peace that for too long has eluded the Israeli and Palestinian people.
