3 blasts reported in Mexico City

MEXICO CITY (AP)- Three simultaneous explosions late Sunday targeted the offices of one of Mexico's main political parties, the headquarters of the country's electoral tribunal and a bank.

Civil protection authorities said no injuries were reported but declined to discuss details of the explosions, which happened around midnight, the government news agency Notimex said.

Mexican radio station Formato 21 reported that the entrance to the headquarters of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, known as the PRI, was damaged, with some windows broken.

The radio station quoted a PRI representative as saying the explosions were carried out by groups trying to destabilize the government prior to President-elect Felipe Calderon's swearing-in on Dec. 1.

No one answered the telephone early Monday at the offices of the civil protection branch responsible for the area.
