08/06/10 – A car bomb exploded in Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas this past Thursday evening. The explosion occurred in the rear parking lot of a police station in which the Secretary of Public Security (Secretaría de Seguridad Pública Estatal – SSP) and the local police force operate out of. The staff of the building were inside at the time of the explosion; fortunately, there were no reported injuries or deaths. Only two police vehicles were damaged in the explosion.
