Bombing at mall kills 3, including French woman
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.
