A Car bomb exploded in front of Los Corales Building in El Poblado. The attack injured two people and caused numerous damage.
In the early morning on January 26, 1993, a Mazda 626 car loaded with 80 kg of dynamite exploded in front of the building where the liberal politician Orlando Vásquez Velásquez lived. The vehicle had been stolen just a few hours before in the city.
Despite the scale of the explosion, the only people injured in the blast were a 13-year-old boy and a security guard. The detonation affected the windows and doors of fifteen residential complexes and the damages were estimated to be COP 50 million.
