Madagascar: The house of the president of the special electoral court targeted by a grenade attack
The house of the president of the Special electoral Court, François Rakoto­zafy, located in the heart of the city of the 67 Ha-North in Tananarive, has been targeted yesterday Thursday September 26, 2013, at three o'clock in the morning, by a grenade attack in the wake of the opening Tuesday of the electoral campaign for the presidential elections of October 25.
The offensive grenade exploded a few meters from the portal without casualties and left a hole of about 20 centimeters.
Fragments damaged the walls of the House of François Rakoto­zafy, and another house in the area.
The strong explosion was heard within a radius of several kilometers.
