Associated Press

Four Israeli telephone repairmen were slightly injured today by a bomb hidden in an olive grove in a West Bank village.

It was the first attack on Israelis since conservative Benjamin Netanyahu was elected last week as Israel’s next prime minister.

Israel Radio said the injured were treated at a hospital.

The bomb was apparently triggered by a remote-control device when the Israeli telephone company workers entered the olive grove to fix a telephone line, Israel Radio said.
