CAROL COSTELLO, CNN ANCHOR: On to our breaking news right now. As we told you just a short time ago, a bomb has gone off near a bus carrying Jewish settlers in Gaza.
Let's go live to Jerusalem and John Vause.
John -- what can you tell us?
JOHN VAUSE, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Hello, Carol.
We know from the Israeli army that three people were hurt in this latest attack. What we're being told is that this was, in fact, a convoy of settlers heading towards the Nexerine (ph) settlement, when a bus drove over a roadside bomb. It caused some damage to the bus, injuring those three people.
Now, these convoys are, in fact, escorted by the Israel military; this was the case. And only three people were slightly hurt, as they headed towards the Nexerine (ph) settlement. It happened around the northern part of Gaza. So far, no idea of who is responsible for this attack -- Carol.
COSTELLO: All right, John Vause live from Jerusalem.
