Bomb blast kills two in Colombian capital

AT least two people were killed and dozens of others injured in a bomb blast in Colombia's capital late yesterday, police said.

The explosion occurred around 0200 GMT outside a video store in an upscale northern Bogota neighborhood.

City police chief Rodolfo Palomino said the bomb appeared to contain about 11 pounds of explosives and was placed in an automatic teller booth next to the store.

The Colombian government has offered a US$45,000 reward for information leading to those responsible for yesterday's blast.

The previous attack that shook Bogota took place on December 29. Police blamed the attack on leftist rebels with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia.
