Bomb dismantled in Brazil's Ministry of Health

Brazilian police found a bomb in the nation’s Ministry of Health building in the capital Brasilia on Friday after being told about it in a telephone call, authorities said. The building had to be evacuated while the device was defused, police said. The bomb was found in the basement of the five-story building, where the ministry’s AIDS program and food aid offices are located. Police dismantled the device, but could not immediately say what kind of explosive materials it contained. They said tests would take several days. It was not clear why the bomb had been planted in the Health Ministry.
