Jerusalem bus bombing toll now 23

Tova Lev, 37, from Bnei Brak, died Friday at Jerusalem's Shaarei Tzedek Hospital of wounds sustained in August's suicide bombing on a Jerusalem bus.

A Palestinian suicide bomber, disguised as an Orthodox Jew, boarded the packed Jerusalem No. 2 bus making its way from the Western Wall to Har Nof August 19 and blew himself up, killing 23 people and wounding more than one hundred, in one of the deadliest bombings in the past three years of violence.

Many of the victims were children.
