Explosive device set off at US consulate in Mexican city

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The attorney general’s office in the western Mexico state of Jalisco says federal officials have taken over an investigation into reports that an explosive device was detonated at the U.S. consulate in the city of Guadalajara.

The consulate in Mexico’s second biggest city said via Twitter that the office was closed because of what it described only as a “security incident” Friday evening. The tweet gave no details, though it said nobody was injured. It said U.S. officials are also investigating.

The consulate says it will provide more information as it becomes available, including whether consular operations will be available Monday.

Neither Mexican officials nor the consulate alluded to possible suspects in the incident.
