ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION A double bombing rocked Colombia's capital of Bogota on Thursday (July 2), injuring eight people, authorities reported. According to local officials, the first explosion took place in Bogota's financial district and wounded seven people. A second blast in an industrial area of the capital injured one more person. The devices are believed to have been home-made. It appears the private Porvenir pension fund was targeted. Authorities have not made any arrests or blamed any group for the attack. No one has claimed responsibility, according to media reports. Police say none of the victims has been seriously injured and investigators have begun reviewing security footage at the site. President Juan Manuel Santos has cut short a regional trade conference in Peru to come back home for briefing on the incident.
