BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) -- Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos says two people have been killed in a bomb attack on a crowded Bogota street that he says targeted a former interior minister.
Santos says former minister Fernando Londono was hurt but is out of danger.
He said in a brief televised declaration that the driver and a police escort of Londono were killed in the bombing, which occurred just before midday Tuesday in the heart of Bogota's commercial district at Calle 74 and Caracas Avenue.
City health director Guillermo Jaramillo told Caracol radio that at least 19 people were hurt..
