NEW YORK — Radicals bombed a police union office Saturday in an attack aimed at "killer cops" for the deaths of two blacks--a woman killed during an eviction procedure and a graffiti artist beaten while in police custody.
Two bombs equal in force to 10 pounds of dynamite exploded almost simultaneously at 1:03 a.m. in a restroom adjoining the office of the Policemen's Benevolent Assn., heavily damaging two other restrooms and the union office.
"It caused a lot of damage," a union spokesman said. "It was a good shot. Luckily, nobody was here at the time."
Two maintenance workers were slightly injured in the blast on the 21st floor of the building, located in lower Manhattan near City Hall. They were treated and released at the scene.
