Middle East Update

NPR's Jennifer Ludden reports a car bomb exploded in Jerusalem today just as Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat were preparing to make simultaneous public announcements about a new agreement aimed at ending the five weeks of clashes in the West Bank and Gaza. Islamic Jihad has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
