Bomb Explodes At Newspaper In Bolivia
No injuries reported as dynamite goes off at 1 am.

LA PAZ -- A bomb exploded at the offices of Bolivia's El Potosi newspaper early Monday, causing damage but no injuries, the daily said in a statement.

Unidentified individuals planted the bomb, which was made from dynamite and exploded around 1:00 a.m., on the advertising office's door.

The "powerful" blast "twisted the metal door and made one of the locks come off," El Potosi said.

Bolivian presidential spokesman Ivan Canelas condemned "this attack on a media outlet" and said the government had requested an investigation to determine "if this was really a terrorist attack or was a personal or individual matter."

The newspaper's management, which ruled out robbery as a motive because workers were still inside the building, said it planned to file a complaint with police on Monday.

"Although no threat of any type was received in the days before the incident, this daily believes the attack was carried out to intimidate its personnel and, if that is the case, they did not succeed," El Potosi said. EFE
