BOGOTA - An explosion near Bogota's bullring injured at least 10 police officers and a civilian woman as they prepared for protests in Colombia's capital on Sunday, local media images showed.
Details of the cause of the blast were not immediately available, but media images showed a police officer in a shredded uniform walking with support of his colleagues, as well as debris in the road, broken glass and damage to apartment buildings close by.
Hundreds of protesters have gathered weekly to demonstrate against bullfighting in Bogota, which resumed last month for the first time in four years.
The ban was lifted by the constitutional court which said it was part of the national heritage, prompting weekly clashes with police.
