A suicide bomber drove a car rigged with explosives toward scores of Israeli troops in south Lebanon today but it exploded just before reaching them, security sources said. They said the driver planned to smash the Renault car packed with 220 pounds of explosives into an Israeli convoy near Khardali Bridge, 6 miles south of Marjayoun in Israel's self-declared "security zone." It was not immediately known what triggered the explosion, which killed only the driver, the sources said.

A suicide car bomb exploded today near Israel's "Good Fence" border crossing in south Lebanon, killing seven Israeli soldiers and wounding nine others and two Lebanese civilians, Israeli officials said.

The same coalition of pro-Iranian fundamentalist groups claimed responsibility for a car bomb that wounded three Israelis in August. The explosion was an even more devastating attack on Israeli soldiers than one last Nov.

Surrounded by tissue paper, feathers and glitter, the students in Andrea DeSharone's classroom could look like a kindergarten art class. But they are working on their PhDs. For future art, music and dance therapists, learning to express their feelings through art--creating an object or image out of these craft supplies--is the key to what they someday hope to practice.

For young Israelis wedged between war and adulthood, it's a chance to escape the struggle of their homeland -- and to be unapologetically young for the first and last time. Once mandatory army service is behind them, they flock overseas for a year, maybe two. Many head for Bolivia, Peru or Thailand. A few venture to Australia or New Zealand. But mostly, former soldiers go to India.
