Bombs damage three banks in Mexican town; no injuries

Bombs exploded outside three banks in a central Mexican city overnight, heavily damaging them but causing no injuries, authorities said Sunday. The explosions occurred around midnight on Saturday in an industrial area of Jiutepec, a town near Cuernavaca about 35 miles from Mexico City. The blasts shattered the front windows of the banks, tossed furniture and ripped out ceiling tiles. The explosions took place outside branches of Banamex, BBVA-Bancomer and Santander Serfin. Explosives left outside a HSBC bank did not go off. Authorities found a note near the bombing sites signed by a group calling itself the Comando Jaramillista Morelense 23 de Mayo — in tribute to the peasant leader Ruben Jaramillo, who was murdered along with his family by state forces on May 23, 1962.
