The World : Mormon Churches Bombed

Bombs exploded at five Mormon churches in Santiago, Chile, causing only minor damage, a church spokesman said. No one was injured in the blasts, which occurred in suburban working-class districts. The attacks brought to 31 the number of chapels of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints bombed in the last 12 months. No one claimed responsibility for the latest explosions, but in previous attacks police found at the scene pamphlets from a leftist guerrilla group called the Manuel Rodriguez Patriotic Front. In the pamphlets, the group said it bombed the churches because the Mormons are “a Yankee church.”
