A bomb blast in the town of Guapi, on Colombia’s Pacific coast in the Cauca department Sunday night left one dead, and two policemen and nine civilians injured, reports Caracol Radio.

The bomb exploded in the street between the church and the police station during Mass. Both buildings were damaged in the blast.
