HeadlineMar 13, 2018
H13 austin bombs

Authorities in Austin, Texas, say the three package explosions that have killed two people over the last two weeks are connected and that race may be playing a factor in the bombings. Two more packages exploded on Monday in separate parts of Austin, killing a 17-year-old African-American teenager and seriously injuring a Hispanic woman. A third explosion on March 2 killed an African-American man. Both victims killed in the explosions are the relatives of prominent members of the African-American community in Austin, Texas.
