Two explosive devices were launched in Colombia’s third largest city Friday, leaving at least eight people hurt.
The first artifact was activated when a police vehicle passed by, leaving two policement hurt and damage to a red-colored private car. The second explosive was activated the moment that reporters and the Cali police commander, General Fabio Alejandro Castañeda, arrived with other police members as well as a drug detection dog.
The blast also reached graphic reporter Juan Pablo Rueda from newspaper El Tiempo, who had been looking to get images from the original scene of the crime.
According to a report by medical emergency director Maurix Rojas, the six police members and two civilians are currently out of danger.
Police are maintaining the zone of the attack and have deployed an operation to find the whereabouts of the responsible parties.
There is a reward of nearly $11 thousand for the capture of the perpetrators of this public attack as part of the authorities’ plan to take action and completely disarm the operation.
