Supreme Court of Justice Building Bombed

Two explosives were detonated at dawn today in the Supreme Court (CSJ) and the “Torre Libertad” (Freedom Tower) buildings, the latter of which houses Channel 10 television.  Luckily there were no injuries, only property damage, police said.

The police spokesman, Orlin Cerrato, told reporters that the bomb that exploded at the headquarters of the judiciary is an RPG-7 made in Russia, and was launched from outside. Damages to the building of the Supreme Court “are of minor consideration,” while the Channel 10 building had broken glass on the second floor, said Cerrato.
A journalist from Channel 10 reported that the bomb also damaged the ground floor.

He added they are doing an analysis of the type of explosive that was used on the Channel 10 building, which also holds offices of Hablemos Claro. Cerrato said the Police has been following up on unidentified groups who aim to terrorize the population into not voting in elections Sunday in Honduras. “These acts will not undermine the will of the people … we guarantee the process, people do not need to fear going outside,” said the police spokesman.
