That was the toll left by an explosion yesterday in a house located between Guayaquil and Rocafuerte streets in the Tumbaco sector, Quito.
The victims are a 24 year-old woman and a 21 year-old man, and also one wounded, Javier Q, 20, who was taken to the Carlos Andrade Marin Hospital.
Tumbaco Zonal Administration officials indicated that the explosion apparently occurred due to a grenade.
Lino Proano, Metropolitan District commander said that a gas tank explosion has been ruled out, so they keep investigating the cause of the accident. On last Sunday, during a military presentation commemorating the Tahisha holidays, in Morona Santiago, a grenade explosion killed five people and wounded 15 others.
