  • WITNESS ACCOUNT: ‘We think that (it was a suicide bomber)’

    July 18, 2012 | 10:59 am

    A suicide bomber probably caused an explosion on a bus at Bulgaria’s Burgas airport which killed three people, an Israeli woman who was on the bus said.

    “We think that (it was a suicide bomber),” witness Aviva Malka told Israeli Army Radio in answer to a question in a telephone interview from the scene.

    “We sat down and within a few seconds we heard a huge boom and we ran away. We managed to escape through a hole on the bus. We saw bodies and many people injured,” she said.

  • A Year to Remember

    By Rob Eshman

    January 2, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    I once had a history teacher who was ambivalent about dates. Before a test, an anxious student would invariably ask whether we'd need to remember what year an event happened.

    He'd wave off the question, "Just remember the big ones."

    Don't you get the feeling 2003 will be a Big...
