Reported pipe bomb explodes outside Jewish temple in Santa Monica
April 7, 2011 | 9:40 am
This post has been corrected. See note at bottom for details.

A device believed to be a pipe bomb exploded about 6:45 a.m. Thursday in the parking lot of a Jewish temple in Santa Monica, authorities said.

No details were available regarding injuries or damage.

The incident occurred at a synagogue near 17th Street and Broadway in Santa Monica. Police evacuated a four-block area and were investigating the possibility of a hate crime.

Updated at 9:50 a.m.: Multiple sources familiar with the investigation said the device exploded just north of the temple. Authorities were trying to determine whether the temple in the 1400 block of 17th Street, Chabad House of Santa Monica, was specifically targeted. There were no reports of injuries.

2. Update: not a bomb.. some type of "mechanical failure"

Santa Monica police said the explosion was not a type of bomb, but was the result of some type of mechanical failure. Sgt. Marty Fine told the Associated Press that some kind of device hit the roof of a building and exploded at about 6:45 a.m. Thursday.

Fine said the type of device is unknown and it's unclear whether the blast was inside or outside of the building.
