The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

BO­GOTA | A home­made bomb placed rocked a busy mall in Colom­bia’s cap­i­tal filled with Fa­ther’s Day shop­pers over the week­end, killing three peo­ple, in­clud­ing a French woman, and wound­ing nine oth­ers.

Wit­nesses said they were evac­u­ated from movie the­aters and stores af­ter the Satur­day evening blast at the up­scale Cen­tro Andino in Bo­gota’s tourist district. Po­lice said a po­tent ex­plo­sive, pos­si­bly made of am­mo­nium ni­trate, placed be­hind a toi­let in a women’s sec­ond-floor bath­room caused the de­struc­tion. It was det­o­nated around 5:30 p.m.
