The World

June 23, 1986

An explosion believed caused by a bomb tore through the Honduran Embassy in Lima, Peru, causing extensive damage but no injuries, the ambassador and police said. The blast blew out all the doors and windows of the embassy, in a residential area in western Lima, Ambassador Carlos Martinez Castillo said. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the blast, the third to hit the Peruvian capital in a 24-hour period. The bombings followed last week's prison uprising by Maoist guerrillas in which at least 250 inmates were killed.
