BOGOTA---Authorities in major
Colombia cities are again impos-
ing bans on alcohol and curfews
for minors today to discourage
mayhem on a big World Cup game
day. Some are even banning
The chief of citizen security for
Colombia s national police, Gen
Jorge Nieto, said that thousands of
extra officers would be on the
streets of Bogota and other major
cities when Colombia meets
Uruguay in Rio de Janeiro for its
first knockout round contest.
A 24-hour alcohol sales ban will
be in effect for Colombia s capital
and other cities. Only a few big
cities, including Medellin and Bar-
ranquilla, are bucking the trend.
Mayors credit the measures with
helping reduce vandalism and cel-
They were imposed only after
Colombia topped Greece in its first
match on June 14 and nine people
Five days later, when Colombia
bested Ivory Coast, the first restric-
tions were in place and police
reported a death toll of two.
On Tuesday, when Colombia
drubbed Japan, police reported just
one violent death associated with
World Cup merrymaking.
Mayor David Castillo of Cucuta,
a provincial capital bordering
Venezuela, barred unaccompanied
minors from the streets that day.
He added a new measure for Sat-
"We are also going to ban motor-
cycles," he said by phone. "There
will be 60,000 motorcycles out of
circulation, so there will be no con-
voys (mobs), and that way we ll
avoid people throwing flour---and
Cartagena, Cali and Pereira were
among major cities also imposing
The controls did not sit well with
"We waited 16 years to get back
in the World Cup and they surprise
us with these dry law measures,"
said Guillermo Botero, president of
the National Federation of Retailers.
"They are practically forcing us to
shut ourselves up in our houses."
He estimated $15 million in lost
liquor and beer sales nationwide
today. In 1998, the last time
Colombia was in the tournament,
there were no such alcohol bans.
ABUJA---Nigeria s intelligence agency
said it has been warning shopping
complexes in Abuja for two weeks that
Islamic extremists might attack them
in the capital, where a blast at a mall
killed 22 people this week.
The increased security may have pre-
vented even more carnage, as witnesses
said a security guard stopped a car
bomber from entering the mall
moments before the massive explosion
Survivor Donald Chikason said a
security guard argued with the driver
of a car who wanted to enter Emab
Plaza through the exit gate. When the
guard refused, the man bent down and
moments later the car exploded.
"The man started arguing, behaving
as if he was drunk," he said.
The explosion was heard miles away.
It set 17 vehicles ablaze and shattered
windows throughout the four-story
complex. Body parts lay around the
exit gate, other witnesses said. Dozens
of wounded survivors were recovering
in the hospitals yesterday, most suf-
fering burn wounds like Chikason, but
at least one victim s leg was amputated,
Nigerian intelligence received infor-
mation that Boko Haram extremists
were planning such an attack, said
spokeswoman Marilyn Ogar of the
Department of State Security.
"About two weeks ago we heard
information that they were planning
an attack at a busy shopping mall or
market...and so we had to go from one
shopping complex to another trying to
tell people to be more aware," she said.
Emab Plaza is the biggest and busiest
in Abuja, the nation s capital in central
Nigeria. The explosion occurred around
rush hour as many residents were hur-
rying to view Nigeria s Super Eagles
match against Argentina at the World
Cup in Brazil. (AP)
