Explosion Rocks American Airlines Office in Ecuador

An explosion rocked American Airlines’ offices in a Quito hotel late on Tuesday, injuring three people, officials said.

Milton Martinez said the explosion was likely caused by a “pamphlet bomb,” a device commonly used to set off low-impact explosions and attract attention.
