In pictures: Return of the suicide bomber
Israeli security has been stepped up after a suicide bomb attack in Gaza shattered a brief lull in the violence. An explosives-laden cyclist killed himself and injured an Israeli soldier when he rammed his bike into a military post. The militant group Islamic Jihad in Palestine has claimed responsibility for the attack.
