Bomb Hits BankBoston in Chile, Seen as War Protest

A small bomb exploded after hours at a Santiago branch of the U.S.-based BankBoston, police said on Thursday, in what appeared to be a protest against the U.S.-led war in Iraq. The bomb, which exploded outside the bank at around 11 p.m. Wednesday, smashed windows and destroyed an automatic cash machine as well as causing minor damage to two adjacent stores, a police spokesman told Reuters.
