The Israeli embassy employee who was injured in a New Delhi bombing last week has returned to Israel on a special flight arranged by the foreign and defense ministries.

Tal Koren-Yehoshua, who arrived in Israel on Satruday, was admitted to Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital for further tests after undergoing surgery in India to remove shrapnel from her spine. She reportedly told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a phone call on Saturday that her condition was improving. Koren-Yehoshu was wounded after a man on a motorcycle attached a bomb to the back of her car.

A senior official in Israel's Counter-Terrorism Bureau told reporters at a briefing this weekend that Iranian and Hezbollah terror cells were still preparing attacks against Israeli targets abroad. He said Israeli citizens abroad should take precautions, but he said there is no specific intelligence about targets.

The Times of India this weekend published details from Koren-Yehoshua's statements to the Indian police. "I saw a biker close to my car when I was going to the American embassy," the newspaper quoted her as saying. "There was a push on the car from behind and I saw the biker. I thought the biker had touched the car. I even lowered the windowpanes to say something to him but he escaped by then."

"As I remember, the biker was wearing a black helmet and black clothes," she said. "I think the bike he was riding was also a black one."
