The woman who died in a bomb attack in central Jerusalem was a British tourist, an Israeli policeman confirmed Thursday, DPA reported.
He could give no further details, saying Israel was still in contact with Britain to ascertain her name, age and other details.
The woman died when a bomb in a bag exploded at a bus stop opposite Jerusalem's central bus station on Wednesday afternoon. Another 39 people were injured in the first bomb attack in Israel's unrecognized capital in more than six years.
The British woman was said to have been in her late 50s.
