CRIME

Texas city rocked by fourth bomb blast

By Jordi Bou

March 19, 2018 - Police in Austin, Texas, are warning that a fourth device that exploded in the city, injuring two men, may be connected to three parcel bombs that have killed or injured four other people since early March.

The two men, thought to be in their 20s, suffered non-life threatening injuries and were taken to the hospital after they came upon a suspicious device on the side of a road.

The possibility that the road-side bomb was triggered when someone handled, kicked or came into contact with a trip wire, differs from the previous explosions that were set off when individuals handled packages that were left on doorsteps.

A reward of $115,000 has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible.
