'A small bomb exploded this week inside a LAN travel agency located in the Argentine town of Neuquen. It was the second bomb attack on an airline in Argentina in seven months.
The blast occurred at 5.30 a.m. Wednesday and blew out some of the building's windows, although no one was injured. Police were able to clear the area around the building after receiving a warning ahead of the blast...
The attack was blamed on the anarchist militant groups known as the International Insurrectionalist Rebel Brigade of Jacinto Arauz. The group claims to represent Mapuche indigenous groups throughout the country and are believed to have participated in violent acts in the Angostura zone south of Neuquen.
The attack mirrored a previous bomb explosion by the same pro-Mapuche group at an Aerolineas office in Buenos Aires last year, in which minimal damaged was caused.'
