BUENOS AIRES – Two people suffered non-life-threatening injuries Thursday when a parcel bomb detonated inside the offices here of Spanish IT giant Indra, the firm said.
Indra has the contract to provide IT and tabulation services for the upcoming Argentine legislative elections.
The blast occurred at 4:30 pm inside Indra’s Argentine headquarters in the upscale Buenos Aires neighborhood of Puerto Madero, the company said in a statement.
Two employees who were in the reception area at the time of the explosion suffered burns and other injuries and were taken to nearby Argerich Hospital, Indra said.
Company sources contacted by EFE declined to speculate whether the incident had any connection to Indra’s role at IT provider for next Sunday’s primary elections.
Indra said it would cooperate fully with the investigation.
