Two car bombs exploded on Friday at the same time in different places of Ciudad Victoria, capital of Tamaulipas state in northeast of Mexico with no injuries.

One of the bombs blasted early Friday morning outside the building of Mexican TV channel Televisa in the south of Ciudad Victoria, while the other explosion occurred near the facilities of the Municipal Transit Direction.

During the broadcasting of Televisa's news program "Primero Noticias" its conductor Carlos Loret said that the bomb in Televisa building in Ciudad Victoria only caused material damages.

"There are material damages outside. Inside we do not know, because the militaries and federal policemen cordoned off the zone and do not allow the pass," Loret said.

Minutes later, another bomb exploded, some 2 kilometers away from the first, also causing only material damages.

On Aug. 15 a grenade was thrown to the roof of Televisa offices in Matamoros, in Tamaulipas state, also causing only material damages. The same day in the offices of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon another grenade exploded in front of Televisa's office.

In July 30 another bomb blast took place in Televisa's offices in Nuevo Laerdo, causing only material damages.

Tamaulipas is the scene of the fight between the Golfo drug cartel and Los Zetas criminal organization.
