Egged is the victim of more than 50 attacks, at least 20 of which were suicide bombings, since the uprising began in September 2000, reported The Middle East Business Weekly. Ridership for the company declined 15% to 20%. Korean ministry to form safety committee Korea’s Ministry of Construction and Transportation is forming a nationwide transportation safety committee to institute safety and disaster prevention measures for the nation’s transit systems. The committee will coordinate and manage all public transportation disaster response. Government entities responsible for transportation safety are fragmented along the modes of transportation. The decision followed a subway fire in Daegu in February that killed about 120 people and injured about 140 others. Arson was believed to be the cause.
