Argentina Arrests 2 for Blast at Office of Spanish Firm

BUENOS AIRES – Two people were arrested on Wednesday for sending the parcel bomb that detonated Aug. 10 at the Buenos Aires offices of Spanish IT giant Indra, which was handling the tabulation for Argentina’s then-impending legislative elections.

Federal Judge Daniel Rafecas issued warrants for Mariano Fresco, 30, and his girlfriend, Veronica Altamirano, judicial sources told EFE, adding that the pair are expected to be arraigned later on Wednesday.

Police also carried out a search of the suspects’ residence in the Buenos Aires suburb of Claypole.

Two people suffered non-life-threatening injuries when the parcel bomb detonated inside Indra’s Argentine headquarters, located in the upscale Buenos Aires neighborhood of Puerto Madero.

Investigators found that Rafecas hired a messenger service to pick up the parcel from a hotel and deliver it to the Indra offices.

The blast came three days before the legislative primaries and some speculated that the attack had some connection to the electoral process.

Authorities, however, said the parcel was addressed to Indra’s personnel office, indicating that the motive was more likely of a personal nature.

The parcel contained a rudimentary explosive device made from widely available materials.
