Bomb Hits BankBoston in Chile, Seen as War Protest

SANTIAGO, Chile (Reuters) -- A small bomb exploded after hours at a Santiago branch of the U.S.-based BankBoston, police said on Thursday, in what appeared to be a protest against the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

The bomb, which exploded outside the bank at around 11 p.m. Wednesday, smashed windows and destroyed an automatic cash machine as well as causing minor damage to two adjacent stores, a police spokesman told Reuters. There were no injuries.

The spokesman said police found a pamphlet at the site that said "death to the empire," which he took as a reference to the United States.

Nobody claimed responsibility for the attack.

A smaller explosive that caused no damage was planted last weekend at the same BankBoston branch.

Anti-war protests in Chile, a member of the U.N. Security Council, have been frequent over the past several weeks but small and non-violent. A recent opinion poll revealed that 98 percent of Chileans opposes U.S. military action in Iraq.
