Two commuter buses have been bombed in southern Israel, killing at least 12 people and wounding about 90 others.
Israeli army radio said two Palestinian suicide bombers carried out the near-simultaneous attacks in the town of Beer Sheva. A Lebanese television station quoted unnamed Palestinians as saying the explosions were suicide attacks.
No one has claimed responsibility.
Israeli television showed rescuers carrying the wounded from two buses on the town's main street. One bus was on fire and the other was gutted with its windows blown out.
There was an early report of a third explosion in a nearby shopping center. But police called that report a false alarm.
Shortly after the attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said there would be no let-up in his government's fight against terrorism.
