Explosive device set off at Air Force recruiting center in Oklahoma

Officials from the FBI and ATF, the federal agency in charge of investigating bombs, are also present should the explosion fall under their jurisdiction - for example if it is classified an act of domestic terrorism. The law enforcement agents are reviewing the scene and collecting evidence to help determine what type of bomb was used and what the possible motive was for the crime.

An explosion outside an Oklahoma Air Force recruiting center is being investigated as a possible act of domestic terrorism, but the late-night blast could also have been a awful prank, a federal agent said Tuesday. "Obviously, they would have done it in broad daylight if that were the case, so, from that standpoint, it's a positive", Rice said. No injuries were reported.

"At this point we don't know if it was a disgruntled employee, an act of domestic terrorism, just someone playing games", Rice said.

Indian and Pakistani troops trade fire on LoC
He said a mortar shell landed near the house of Territorial Army jawan Mohammad Showkat in Karmara village near the LoC. The ISPR said that Pakistan army troops effectively responded to Indian unprovoked firing.

Witnesses say someone on a red motorcycle threw a backpack at the recruiting center, which then blew up.

The center belongs to the USA air force.

The amount of damage has yet to be confirmed, but Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Jessi Race has said no-one was injured and the facility was closed at the time of the blast. They believe it may have been a pipe bomb. That vandalism included slashed tires. Meredith Davis, a representative for the ATF, said the explosion occurred at about 10:30 p.m.
