Two pamphlet-bombs exploded Thursday night targeting the buildings of a TV channel and the Ecuadorian Education Ministry without reports of victims and major damages, Ecuadorian police said on Friday.

Both explosions were registered at around 23:00 local time on Thursday (0500 GMT on Friday) in the north of Quito.

The first explosive device blew up at the gardens of the right-wing TV channel Teleamazonas, where some 50 people were working, but none of them were injured.

The second was detonated at the headquarters of the Education Ministry.

The pamphlets found at both explosion sites were against the government, police general commander Freddy Martinez said.

Jorge Ortiz, Teleamazonas' presenter of the morning news, said that the TV channel wanted "to announce, once again, that despite all the threats, attacks and incomprehension, the channel will not change by any means it decision of continuing being an independent channel from the political power, to inform without fear, with objectivity, pluralism and opening."

Meanwhile, the administrative director from the Education Ministry Patricia Martinez told reporters that "Last night there was an explosion outside. There were no big damages and injuries," adding that "the issue is on police hands."
