Three women died and several other people were injured in an explosion at a mall in Colombia'sBogota on Saturday, Reuters reported.
According to local media and witnesses, the explosion occurred on the second floor of the mall inside the women's restroom.
Another militant group, the National Liberation Army, known commonly as the ELN, has carried out bombings in the past, including an attack in February that killed a police officer and injured 20 others.
Firefighters stand outside the Centro Andino shopping center in Bogota, Colombia, Saturday, June 17, 2017.
A powerful explosion in an upscale mall in Colombia's capital Saturday evening left at least three people dead and nearly a dozen injured, local authorities said.
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos made a visit to the bomb site late Saturday evening where he condemned the attack but declined to speculate who was behind it. He tweeted that Colombians should "continue life as normal" in the face of attacks.
Bomb attacks in South America have not ceased even after Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), the country's biggest guerrilla group, signed a peace treaty in 2016, which gave people high hopes that peace will finally be restored.
A woman has been killed, while 11 have sustained injuries.
The Colombian leader pledged compensations for the victims' families. The fresh reports have claimed that she was volunteering at a nearby school in Colombia. The group posted on its Facebook page a black ribbon in memory of Huynh as dozens of emotional messages poured in from people moved by her example. At the moment, no names have been released but both are believed to be Colombian nationals. However, ELN, which is now in peace talks with the government, denied involvement in the attack via a Twitter post.
The explosion comes at a delicate time for Colombia's historic peace process.
Attention is now focused on Colombia's rebel movement National Liberation Army (ELN) as the group previously claimed responsibility for a February bombing that killed a police officer.
