Yesterday (March 20) evening foreign media reported of an explosion that injures one in a charity shop in Austin, Texas.
Police have discovered that it was an incendiary device and not a package bomb that caused this explosion.
According to the authorities, it is not related to the series of recent parcel bomb in the area that has killed two people.
Instead, it was an old military device donated to the store that detonated.
“A very, very sick individual, or maybe individuals”carried out those blasts, said President Donald Trump. He pledged justice for the victims.
The city has been on edge after the attacks, and hundreds of police have been deployed to the area to investigate.
A tweet was sent out by Austin police yesterday after the explosion.
#UPDATE: There was no package explosion in the 9800 block of Brodie Ln. Items inside package was not a bomb, rather an incendiary device. At this time, we have no reason to believe this incident is related to previous package bombs. #Breaking #packagebombmurders
