Investigators with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms examine the burned ruins of the Mt. Zion AME Church in Greeleyville, South Carolina, on July 1, 2015Fires at six African-American churches in the southern United States do not appear to be linked or racially motivated, officials said. Preliminary investigations point to three of the fires being accidental, with the cause of the other three still to be determined, Ginger Colbrun, spokeswoman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), told AFP. "At this time, there is no evidence that (the six fires) are linked or racially motivated," Colbrun said, stressing that investigations into all the incidents are still ongoing.

A policeman stands at the site where an explosion occurred at the office of the Porvenir pension fund in downtown BogotaBy Peter Murphy BOGOTA (Reuters) - Two small bombs exploded in Bogota, Colombia's capital, on Thursday afternoon, injuring seven, according to the defense minister, who said he would deploy greater numbers of military and police onto the streets in response to the "terrorist doings." Defense Minister Luis Carlos Villegas did not blame any group for the explosions, neither of which caused serious injuries. President Juan Manuel Santos departed early from a regional summit in neighboring Peru to chair a security meeting after the explosions, both of which targeted the offices of a private pension fund, Porvenir, in the financial district. The FARC has repeatedly bombed oil pipelines in the last few weeks, causing thousands of gallons of crude to spill into major rivers, killing fish and leaving thousands to fetch drinking water from tanker trucks.
