Walking through the souq an hour ago it was clear something was going on.
Accompany me down the street was a murmur that became raised voices:
'Jerusalem! An incident in Jerusalem!'
'Shhh... wait for it to come on the news.'
'Next to the Armenian Quarter.'
'At the beginning of West Jerusalem.'
'They're saying 25 injured - 3 are critical.'
'Next to the bus station. A bomb.'
'There's gonna be searching.'
As quickly as it started, it all quieted back down.
People went back to selling their wares and going about their day. Immune to anything that could disrupt their hard won post intifada peace.
Through the usual cacophony of vegetable prices and clucking chickens however, every radio and TV in the souq was switched on to the news.
