An off-duty police officer was killed on Sunday by a bomb that exploded outside Fedecamaras, Venezuela's chamber of commerce, director of the forensic police Marcos Chavez said.

Scattered leaflets handed out by a group called the People's Left-Wing Army were found at the site that read "Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. The guerilla front will win. The People's Left-wing Army. Caracas. Feb. 24."

The group claimed responsibility for the attack saying that Fedecamaras is conspiring against the government and is responsible for the food shortages in the country.

Chavez said a document found on the dead man identified him as a Metropolitan Police officer, but declined to comment on whether the officer might also be responsible for detonating the bomb.

A senior official from Fedecamaras Lope Mendoza condemned Sunday's attack saying he was saddened that the private sector is being blamed for food shortages across the country.

A bomb exploded at the Venezuelan legislature, the National Assembly, last Monday, and on Feb. 13, another explosion occurred close to the statue of George Washington in a Caracas square.
