Colombian President Calls Car Bombing 'Terrorist Act'
A powerful car bomb has exploded in the Colombian capital, Bogota, injuring at least six people and damaging nearby buildings and vehicles.
Newly inaugurated President Juan Manuel Santos visited the scene after the blast early Thursday and was briefed by police. He called the bombing a terrorist act and vowed to continue fighting such attacks.
Police say the explosion occurred near a building that houses Radio Caracol in the northern part of the city.
A police spokesman said it is unclear what the target was, as a bank is on the same block as the radio station and the American Embassy is not far away.
The blast shattered windows on buildings and vehicles. Police cordoned off the street to protect bystanders from falling glass.
No one has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
