INTRO: President Bush has responded angrily to the news of the latest suicide bombing in Israel. V-O-A's Paula Wolfson reports at least nine-people were killed in an attack on a bus near the northern Israeli city of Safed.

TEXT: The president says he was distressed to hear about the bombing. He says the world should come together to help end the bloodshed.

/// BUSH ACT ///

I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers.

/// END ACT ///

Mr. Bush got the news from Israel while vacationing at his parents' home in Kennebunkport, Maine. He told reporters that a few killers want to stop the peace process. He vowed they will not succeed.

/// BUSH ACT ///

For the sake of humanity, for the sake of the Palestinians who suffer, for the sake of the Israelis who are under attack, we must stop the terror.

/// END ACT //

The latest suicide bombing ripped apart a bus crammed with rush hour passengers, including a number of soldiers returning to duty after a weekend off.

A few hours later, three more people died in a gun battle outside the walls of Jerusalem's old city. (SIGNED)
