2011 Jerusalem Bus Bombing

On March 23, 2011, a bomb weighing between 1-2 kilograms (2.2-4.4 pounds) exploded at a crowded bus stop next to Egged city bus #74, across the street from the Jerusalem Convention Center and near the Central Bus Station. Mary Jean Gardner, a 59-year-old British national who was studying at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, was killed and about 50 people were wounded in the attack. Jerusalem Mayor Barkat notably remarked, "When terror attempts to disrupt our way of life, the best solution is to get back to normal as quickly as possible. Events in Jerusalem will not be cancelled and Jerusalem will not stop running."​
