Senator suffers light injuries from book bomb
Authorities say an explosive device inside a book caused minor injuries to a senator when it blew up in her office.
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Thursday that the device received by Citlalli Hernández was a “homemade bomb” designed “to cause damage.” He said the attorney general’s office was investigating.
The 29-year-old Hernández represents Mexico City and previously served in the lower Chamber of Deputies. She’s a leftist and social activist from López Obrador’s Morena party.
In a Twitter post late Wednesday she said that she was well.
