Bombs go off after Obama arrives in Colombia; leftist guerrillas suspected

Four small bombs exploded in Colombia in what police said may have been a protest by leftist guerrillas against the presence of U.S. President Barack Obama in the country for the Summit of the Americas.

A senior police source in the capital Bogota told Reuters that two explosives were placed in a ditch in a residential area near the attorney general's office and the U.S. Embassy.


"There are windows broken, but nobody hurt or killed," the source added.

Secret Service agents sent home from Colombia, involvement with prostitutes alleged

Obama landed in Cartagena, on Colombia's northern coast far from Bogota, earlier on Friday. "It might be a protest by an urban guerrilla cell against Obama," the source told Reuters.

Local authorities in Cartagena told NBC News that two small bombs also went off in Cartagena, about a 45-minute drive away from the summit site itself.
