India Witnesses Saw Biker Attach Bomb to Car

Witnesses in New Delhi say the bomb that moderately injured the wife of an Israeli diplomat on Monday was attached to her car by a man driving a motorcycle, India’s police chief told reporters.

Tali Yehoshua-Koren, wife of the Defense Ministry’s representative to India, was taken to the American Hospital in the city after being wounded by shrapnel, and a decision whether to transport her to Israel is expected to be made in the next few hours.

India’s Foreign Minister SM Krishna called his Israeli counterpart Avigdor Lieberman and told him an investigation has been launched, and that India will provide the Israeli embassy and diplomats with all necessary security measures. He added that India strongly condemns the attack and that the perpetrators will be caught and brought to justice.

The incident came one day after the fourth anniversary marking the assassination of Hezbollah’s deputy leader, Imad Mughniyah, which the Islamist organization blames on Israel.

Also on Monday, a Georgian worker employed by the Israeli embassy in Tbilisi alerted police after noticing a strange object attached to a car assigned to the Israeli envoy to the country.
