Two Wounded by Parcel-Bomb in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Two professors were wounded Monday when a parcel-bomb detonated at a branch campus of Mexico’s most prestigious private university, authorities said.

The blast took place in faculty offices at a Monterrey Tech campus in the central state of Mexico.

Hurt in the explosion were Alejandro Aceves Lopez, a professor of robotics, and colleague Armando Herrera Corral, state Attorney General Alfredo Castillo told Radio Formula.

The bomb appeared to be homemade, he said.

Authorities may have “more elements” for the investigation once they are able to talk to the victims, Castillo said, suggesting the attack could have been the work of a disgruntled student or a “random” act.

Aceves Lopez received serious injuries in the blast, according to media accounts.

Monterrey Tech, or ITESM, has 27 campuses across Mexico and operates five preparatory schools.

The institution’s main campus, in the northern industrial metropolis of Monterrey, was the scene in March 2010 of a pitched battle between army troops and gunmen working for a drug cartel.

Two graduate students were killed by soldiers who mistook them for the men they were pursuing. EFE
