Car explosion at the police school in Colombia. There are dead

Ua major explosion inside the Santander General Police School in Bogota, Colombia, was recorded this Thursday at 9:30 am (2:30 am in Lisbon). The accident resulted in at least eight deaths and 38 wounded.

Authorities do not exclude the possibility of a terrorist attack on a car bomb.

The first versions cited by the local newspaper El Tiempo report that a man arrived at the entrance to the school when he was detained by the security inspectors. He accelerated and hit a wall.

The police said the driver was dead.

The testimonies, as well as the images transmitted show the remains of a cremated vehicle.

The injured were transported to the hospital and until that moment they are unaware of the state of health they are in.

The car exploded inside the premises of the police school where the agents of the national police were trained, south of Bogota.

An investigation was opened to ascertain the details of the accident.

The attack has not yet been confirmed, but National Liberation Army rebels have launched attacks on police targets in Colombia in recent months amid a political impasse that has opposed them to the conservative president Ivan Duque. The head of state has already resorted to Twitter to classify the attack as "terrorist".
