In pictures: Jerusalem bombing
A suicide bomber walks up to a group of Israelis in a religious area of west Jerusalem and detonates his explosives - leaving nine dead and nearly 60 injured.

Militant group the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was in retaliation for Israeli military action in Palestinian refugee camps.
