MEXICO CITY (AP) -The federal Public Safety Department says a phone tip around
midnight led authorities to a dead body in a car in a shopping center parking lot. In a second car, police found the bomb.
A Department statement issued Saturday said agents deactivated
the device and removed most of the explosive material to analyze
Then they safely detonated the vehicle. There were no injuries,
and only minor property damage.
Juarez is the same city where in July, drug traffickers staged
the first successful car-bombing in Mexico, killing three people.
More than 28,000 people have died in Mexico's drug violence
since late 2006.
