“Authorities in Ecuador are investigating small explosives sent to journalists at several media outlets, one of which detonated but did not injure anyone, and they said Tuesday [March 21] they have a suspect.

The suspect is not being identified so as not to hinder the continuing investigation, Interior Minister Juan Zapata said, and he didn’t clarify if that person had been detained or if authorities know a motive for the attacks.

Zapata said all five of the packages sent in recent days included similar small explosive devices disguised as USB memory sticks.”
