Bomb explodes outside Venezuela business chamber, killing 1

A small bomb exploded outside the headquarters of Venezuela's leading business chamber on Sunday, killing one person, police said. The blast occurred near the entrance of the Fedecamaras business chamber headquarters in Caracas's middle-class La Florida neighborhood in Chacao district at approximately 1 a.m. local time, killing a man and shattering windows, Federal Police Chief Marcos Chavez said. "There's a person who was close by, and presumably could have been hit by the shock wave," Chavez told The Associated Press in a brief telephone interview. "We still have not identified the person." Chacao Police Director Carlos Arreaza said the victim was missing his right hand, leading Chacao police to presume the dead man accidentally detonated the bomb.
