At least 13 people were killed in this latest bombing.

((Police now say the bomber was on foot. He triggered his deadly charge at one of Tel Aviv's busiest streetcorners, just outside the city's biggest downtown shopping mall. Sidewalks and stores were full of pedestrians and afternoon shoppers... blast, shrapnel and flying glass tore through the crowds among those struck, children in costume, on their way to celebrations of a Jewish festival, Purim. Rescue crews raced to the scene, fighting to save lives, evacuating the wounded to hospital. Passersy gave what help and comfort they could. Islamic radicals have now carried out four deadly attacks in nine days, killing well over 50 people, and at this hour the death toll still seems sure to rise.
(SHIMON PERES/ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER, PARAPHRASED, WE WILL SURVIVE THIS)

Soon after the attack, embattled Prime Minister Shimon Peres was calling on Israelis not to lose faith.
He insisted PLO Chief Yasser Arafat had to keep his end of the peace bargain.
And Arafat promised to work with israel to uproot terrorism, roundly condemning the attack and the attackers, though his actions thus far have been less convincing than his words.
As Israelis gathered at the site of the blast, Peres gathered his cabinet for an emergency session.
Yesterday he declared what he called total war against the extremists. Today's attack seems to be their mocking reply. Israelis are crying out for tough action now. JESSE SHULMAN/CBS NEWS, TEL AVIV.))
