Mexican senator suffers light injuries from book bomb

Mexican authorities say an explosive device inside a book caused minor injuries to a senator when it blew up in her office.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Thursday that the device received by Citlalli Hernández was a “homemade bomb” designed “to cause damage.” He said the attorney general’s office was investigating.

The 29-year-old Hernández represents Mexico City and previously served in the lower Chamber of Deputies. She’s a leftist and social activist from López Obrador’s Morena party.

In a Twitter post late Wednesday she said that she was well.

She wrote: “Necessary security measures have been taken and we will let competent authorities address the case.”

Morena’s Senate leader Ricardo Monreal said that packages entering the building would be reviewed more closely.
