A Thursday morning bombing at a Colombian police academy in the capital city killed at least nine people and injured more than 20 others, officials said. A car rammed into the General Santander National Police Academy in southern Bogotá before the explosion went off. Witnesses said the force of the blast shattered the windows of nearby apartments. Police confirmed the casualties included citizens from Ecuador and Panama. Colombian President Iván Duque condemned the “miserable” attack. “All of us Colombians reject terrorism and are united in confronting it,” he tweeted.
