Israeli tanks moved into Ramallah at dawn

A suicide bomber has blown herself up in a Jerusalem shopping mall killing two other people and injuring 20.

The woman detonated her explosives at the entrance to a supermarket in Kiryat Yovel, a working-class Jewish area in the south-eastern part of the city.

A group called the Al Aqsa Brigades has claimed it's behind the attack and that 18-year-old Ayat Akhras was the bomber.

It's the second Palestinian suicide bomb attack carried out by a woman.

Arafat under attack


Meanwhile, Israeli troops are directly attacking the headquarters of the Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat.

Tanks have shelled the area in the West Bank town of Ramallah and bulldozers have torn down walls and fences.

At least 13 people were injured when soldiers and Mr Arafat's security guards fired at each other.

The operation followed attacks which killed 27 Israelis in three days.
