Three killed in blast at upscale Bogota mall


BOGOTA: Three people including a young Frenchwoman were killed and nine others wounded Saturday when an explosion rocked an upscale Bogota mall, authorities said, as the country’s only active guerrilla group condemned the incident. One Frenchwoman, 23, died in the attack, according to the city’s mayor. Two Colombians “died as a result of the injuries suffered,” the Clinic of the Country said in a statement. Another 48-year-old Frenchwoman was among the injured, according to the clinic. Bogota Mayor Enrique Penalosa said authorities could not confirm “which group could be responsible” for the blast, but said it was “clearly a cowardly terrorist attack.”
