At least five people were injured after an explosion went off a bus stop in the Chilean capital of Santiago on Friday.

Footage shows police blocking access to the area while forensics teams study the crime scene.

According to the authorities the blast was triggered when one of the victims attempted to inspect a bag left at the bus stop.

The Chilean offshoot of an eco-terrorist group, Individualists Tending toward the Wild (ITS), has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack. In January 2017 the group claimed responsibility for a parcel bomb sent to the chairman of the Chilean state-owned copper producer Codelco, Oscar Landerretche, which resulted in only superficial injuries.
