RALEIGH — A graduate of two local universities was killed by the bomb that exploded Wednesday in a crowded cafeteria at Jerusalem's Hebrew University, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Five Americans and two Israelis died in the blast, which injured dozens of others.

The victim was identified in news reports as Dina Carter, 38, who received her bachelor of arts degree in anthropology from Duke in 1986. She was listed in Duke records as Diane Leslie Carter of Greensboro.

Carter also earned a master of social work degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Carter was employed at the Jewish National and University Library (JNUL) on the Edmond J. Safra Campus at Givat Ram as a librarian and archivist in the manuscripts department and archives, according to the Jerusalem Post.

According to Rafi Weiser, head of the JNUL's manuscripts department, Carter was a special person. Weiser says she was perceptive, intelligent, well educated and had a winning personality.

The North Carolina native emigrated to Israel in 1990, the newspaper reported.
