NATION : U.S. Offices Bombed in Puerto Rico

<i> From Times wire services </i>

Pipe bombs exploded at a U.S. Army recruiting station, a post office and other offices in a shopping center before dawn today, police reported.

Police reported no injuries in the bombings, the latest in a series of attacks on U.S. government facilities. There was no claim of responsibility.

Police said the explosive devices went off at 2 a.m. at the shopping center about 10 miles east of San Juan, causing “considerable” damage to the recruiting office, the post office and a supermarket.

In June, the Borinquen Popular Army, also known as the Los Macheteros, or machete wielders, claimed responsibility for a bomb that caused heavy damage to a U.S. Army recruiting station and a branch of the Bank of Boston in nearby Bayamon.
