Prosecutor Feared Dead in Venezuela Bomb Blast

Two powerful explosions have ripped apart a vehicle belonging to a prominent Venezuela prosecutor.

Witnesses say the two blasts destroyed Deputy Attorney General Danilo Anderson's truck as it drove through a neighborhood in western Caracas late Thursday.

Venezuelan officials say investigators are trying to determine if the charred body found inside the vehicle is Mr. Anderson.

Mr. Anderson was preparing a case against nearly 400 people allegedly involved in the April 2002 rebellion that briefly ousted populist president Hugo Chavez.
