Suicide bombing kills 3 in Eilat

EILAT, Israel (Reuters) - Palestinian militant groups carried out their first suicide bombing in Israel in nine months, killing 3 people in the resort of Eilat on Monday.

The Eilat blast came four days before the "Quartet" of Middle East peacemakers was to meet in Washington as part of a bid to revive Israeli-Palestinian talks. Efforts have only been complicated by fierce Palestinian factional infighting.

Islamic Jihad and al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades claimed responsibility for what was the first suicide attack in the Red Sea tourist town, and named a 21-year-old from Gaza as the bomber.
