PM Sharon delays prisoner release

A bus carrying 69 Palestinian criminals whose sentences were commuted yesterday by Israel's president, was on its way to a West Bank checkpoint, where the prisoners were to be released, when word came of the two terrorist bombings. PM Sharon delayed their release, and the bus returned to the prison in northern Israel.
