    Background: COLOMBIA: BOGOTA

    A car bomb exploded near the US embassy in Columbia, killing a Columbian woman and injuring at least 8 persons. The attack came less than two weeks after US embassy officials reportedly received threats from cocaine traffickers - that five Americans would be killed for every Columbian extradited to the UnIted States to face drug charges. The bomb, placed under a car parked less than three metres from the embassy compound, destroyed vehicles parked along the small street and shattered windows in office buildings as far as 100 metres away. One of the buildings that had its windows broken was the US Drug Enforcement Agency. No one at the highly protected embassy was injured. The exploded car contained several hundred anti-drug phamplets - a warning police at the scene said, from the drug traffickers.
