Ynet reports a Palestinian man who was denied entry to Israel by security forces stationed at the Hashmonaim checkpoint dropped a bag containing explosives and fled the scene.

A explosives expert who was alerted to the scene found four pipe bombs in the bag, which were then safely detonated. The security forces have launched a manhunt for the suspect.

No reaction yet from anti-Israel NGOs who claim the apprehension of would-be bombers at security checkpoints is an unnecessary security measure.
