Tal Yehoshua Koren, Israeli diplomat´s wife who sustained shrapnel
wounds in New Delhi bombing, boards plane home
Tal Yehoshua Koren, the Israeli diplomat´s wife who was injured in a
terror attack in New Delhi earlier this week, was released from the
hospital on Friday and is on her way back to Israel.
Yehoshua Koren and her family have boarded a special flight on Friday
afternoon, organized by the Defense and Foreign ministries. After
arriving at Ben Gurion Airport she is expected to be taken to the
Sourasky Medical Center in Tel Aviv.
Yehoshua Koren, 40, is married to Alon Yehoshua, 43, a Defense
Ministry attaché to the Israeli embassy in the Indian capital.
An initial probe into Monday´s attack revealed that the envoy´s wife
left the embassy with her driver after a day of work at the mission
in order to pick up her children from school. The explosion took
place a short while before she arrived at the school, apparently
after a bomb was attached to the vehicle. The bomb was evidently
attached to the car. The driver was injured as well.
Yehoshua Koren was hit by shrapnel, which was removed in surgery.
Terror warning issued
Indian media reported on Wednesday that New Delhi police arrested
five suspects in connection with the terror attack.
New Delhi police officials did not reveal the suspects´ identities or
indicate whether they were tied to Iran or Hezbollah.
Israel accused Iran of perpetrating the bombing, as well a concurrent
attempted attack on an Israeli embassy vehicle in Tbilisi, Georgia.
Tehran denied the charges.
Also Friday, Israel´s Counter Terrorism Bureau has warned of
additional attempts to hurt Israelis worldwide, following the recent
attacks in Thailand, Georgia and India.
A senior official in the bureau urged Israelis who are currently
overseas to be extra vigilant. The warning was based on information
extracted during the interrogation of suspects arrested in connection
to the terror attacks in New Delhi and Bangkok. According to the
information, Iran and Hezbollah are planning to carry out attacks
against Israeli and Jewish targets around the world. Moran Azulay
