A radical feminist group has claimed responsibility for the bombing of the headquarters of Mexico’s Catholic Council of Bishops.

An explosive device was set off two days ago but did little damage and caused no casualties.

Bishop Ramon Castro of Cuernavaca said he believed the attack ‘reflects the situation in Mexico’, where three priests have been killed so far this year.

A statement signed by the ‘Informal Feminist Command for Anti-Authoritarian Action’ was posted on the anarchist website Contra Info claiming it carried out the attack and implying it was in retaliation for abuse carried out by Catholic priests.

It says the device was made with dynamite, LP gas and propane.
