Mexican newspaper suffers third grenade attack in less than six months

For the third time since September, a division of Grupo Reforma-owned newspaper El Norte was hit with a grenade in the northern Mexican city of Monterrey, Vanguardia reports.

The attack, which took place the night of March 31, did not cause any injuries and only damaged two windows, EFE explains.

The same division of El Norte – the Edición La Silla – suffered other explosive attacks on Sept. 20, 2010 and Jan. 10, 2011.

Mexico’s biggest TV network, Televisa, has been a target of similar attacks.
