SECRETARY-GENERAL CONDEMNS TERRORIST BOMBING IN JERUSALEM

19960304
The following was issued yesterday, 3 March, by the Spokesman for the Secretary-General:

Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali condemned the terrorist bombing of a bus in Jerusalem -- the third in eight days -- as a brutal and cowardly act.

"I am shocked and outraged by these appalling acts of terrorism against innocent civilians", he said. "I condemn this latest attack that, like the others, is also an assault on the peace process on which we have all so painstakingly worked."

"I once again call on all men and women of good will not to allow terrorism to endanger the precious gains achieved by the Israeli and Palestinian people at an already great cost."
