Israeli Convoy Misses Blast in Jordan

How do you say "phew" in Hebrew? A bomb went off near an Israeli embassy motorcade headed from Jordan back to Israel, apparently flipping one car but causing no casualties. Conflicting reports have emerged as to the diplomats involved, with Israeli media saying it was the Israeli ambassador to Jordan, Dani Nevo, in the convoy, while Jordanian sources have indicated that it was former Israeli ambassador Yakov Rosen. An investigation into the attack is under way.
