BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) ' Colombian officials say a bomb has exploded outside a police station in a western town, killing a police officer and wounding at least 20 people.

It is Colombia's second lunch-hour bombing near a police station in as many days.

Cauca state security coordinator Edith Cabeza confirmed the police officer's death in Thursday's 1 p.m. bombing in the town of Villa Rica

The attack comes a day after a bomb planted in a tricycle in the Pacific port of Tumaco killed nine people and unjured another 76.

Colombia's defense minister says leftist rebels perpetrated the Tumaco bombing in league with a local drug trafficking gang.
