Buenos Aires, Aug 26 (IANS/EFE) A bomb exploded at a branch of Spanish banking giant BBVA in Buenos Aires, destroying an ATM but causing no injuries, police said.
The bombing at the BBVA-Banco Frances Wednesday, which shattered the bank branch’s windows, is the second this month against Spanish banks in Argentina.

No one has, however, claimed responsibility for the attack, police said.

A bomb had exploded in the early part of August outside a branch of Santander Rio in the capital, causing damage to the structure.

The attack was allegedly carried out by a group calling itself the Andrea Salsedo Revolutionary Brigade Cells, which has claimed responsibility for similar bombings.

The group claimed it carried out the bombing in July of a BBVA-Banco Frances branch that destroyed an ATM and wounded a woman.
