(TODAY COLOMBIA) Eight people were reported injured in Colombia’s capital Bogota on Thursday after two bombs went off almost simultaneously at offices of a Colombian pension fund.

The first bomb went off before a Porvenir pension office in the Chapinero district at approximately 3:45PM. Within minutes a second bomb went off at another office of the pension fund in the Puente Aranda district.

“Around a quarter to four we heard the explosion. We thought it was a thunderbolt but immediately after we noticed what something had happened. People in the area are terrified,” a witness told El Tiempo.

Following the apparent dual attack, Porvenir ordered all offices to immediately be evacuated while local security forces were witnessed looking for more possible bombs.

The authorities made no immediate announcement about the possible motive of the attacks.
