SANTIAGO - A bomb exploded next to an underground train station in the Chilean capital of Santiago on Monday afternoon, wounding at least 10 people, and the government said it bore the signs of "a terrorist" act.



The blast occurred at lunchtime in a fast-food restaurant in a small shopping and eating area next to the Escuela Militar metro station in the affluent residential and shopping neighborhood of Las Condes.

Security cameras showed that two suspects planted the device in a metal container, possibly a trash can, outside the fast-food restaurant and escaped in a car.



None of the injuries were fatal. Local health officials said a Venezuelan man in his 30's suffered trauma to his leg and a woman had at least one of her fingers amputated. Others suffered hearing losses.
