QCOSTARICA – Found on the railway line to Alajuela (from San Jose), suspected of being placed there awaiting the passage of the train carrying President Luis Guillermo Soli and his cabinet, were “strange packages”.

Security Minister, Gustavo Mata, confirmed the packages were located on the railway line, near the Invu Las Cañas.

The Minister added that information led to the package being detected before the train was able to run over it, activating protocols to protect the President and his officials.

Although the case is still under investigation, unofficially, it is speculated the packages contained explosive material.
