JERUSALEM, Oct 11 (Reuters) - A Palestinian woman motorist set off a bomb after being pulled over by Israeli police in the occupied West Bank on Sunday, killing herself and lightly wounding an officer, police said.

"The driver shouted 'Allah Hu Akbar' (God is great) and detonated an explosive device," a police spokeswoman said.

The incident followed a surge since last week in Palestinian attacks on Israelis, mostly with crude weapons like knives and rocks, and a crackdown by Israeli security forces. Four Israelis and 24 Palestinians have been killed in 11 days of violence.
