3 Held in Connection with Subway Bombings
Police arrested two men and a woman in a Santiago neighborhood and charged them with two subway bombings this year, the most alarming attacks in a wave of blasts that has rattled the metropolitan area. The three, all in their 20s, are said to be members of the Lautaro anarchist group. One of them was on probation from a robbery conviction. Carabineros are still seeking two others who eluded the Sept 18. raid. The arrests marked a breakthrough for investigators, who had been unable to crack down on about 30 bombings this year. Police say they found gunpowder and other bomb-making materials with the suspects.
