Peruvian Police Defuse Bomb

From Reuters

Peruvian police today defused a powerful bomb planted near the presidential palace by presumed left-wing guerrillas.

Police sources said the cannonball-shaped bomb had been planted on the banks of the river Rimac about two blocks from the presidential palace in central Lima. The bomb would have caused damage in a 50-yard radius but it was not immediately clear whether its fragments would have reached the palace, they said.
