Colombian bomb investigators seek young man who fled in taxi
BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) ' Colombian investigators are seeking a man between 17 and 20 years old they suspect is the bomber who killed two bodyguards of a conservative former interior minister and injured 39 people in a busy commercial district of Bogota.
A police report seen by The Associated Press says the man was bleeding from an arm when a taxi driver picked him up near the scene of Tuesday's blast.
It says the man told the cabbie, "Get me out of here" and the driver took him 10 blocks. Authorities are making a sketch of the man.
The government has not ascribed blame for the bombing although there is speculation Colombia's main leftist rebel group is responsible.
Authorities say the attacker affixed a bomb to a door of the ex-minister's armored SUV.
