On Wednesday, a bomb exploded in Mexico just outside the office of the Mexican Bishop’s Conference, adjacent to the country’s most visited religious site: The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The motive for the July 25 explosion remains a mystery, though some at the Bishop's Conference say the incident reflects the violence suffered by the society at large, in a country with soaring homicide rates and a decade-long drug cartel crackdown. Monsignor Ramon Castro, Bishop of Cuernavaka, shared on twitter a video taken from within the offices, the explosion that happened on the 25th at about 1:50am just outside the main entrance of the Bishops Conference. Luckily, no one was hurt.
The type of device used and the motive remained unknown, but detectives are still investigating the explosion. I’ll keep you up to date on this as details become available.
