Question of the Day
Gas-tank attacks damage two banks; no injuries
MEXICO CITY — Two small explosive devices went off before dawn at two Mexico City banks on Monday, shattering windows but leaving no injuries, the city’s top prosecutor said.
No arrests have been made, but Mexico City Attorney General Miguel Mancera said authorities suspect youth gangs were behind the attack.
“There were just material damages,” Mr. Mancera told Mexican television.
Suspected anarchist groups have set off small explosions in Mexican banks several times in recent years. The attack did not appear related to the country’s drug war, in which cartels have set off car bombs as they resist a government crackdown.
The explosive devices on Monday appeared to be using small butane tanks, Mr. Mancera said.
Images from Televisa network showed shattered glass on the floor and damaged furniture inside a BBVA Bancomer bank office on the city’s west side. The other explosion was at a Santander Serfin branch, Reforma newspaper reported.
A third device was left in another Santander Serfin branch but did not explode, Reforma reported.
Right-wing Fujimori tops presidential polls
In a CPI poll published early Monday by RPP radio, the daughter of jailed former President Alberto Fujimori had 53.7 percent of the vote, while Mr. Humala had 46.3 percent when null and spoiled ballots were excluded in a mock vote organized by the pollster.
Another pollster, Ipsos, said its mock vote showed Ms. Fujimori had 51.4 percent of the vote to Mr. Humala’s 48.6 percent.
The survey firm Datum’s mock vote said Ms. Fujimori would get 52.4 percent of the vote and Mr. Humala 47.6 percent.
