A van packed with explosives blew up on Thursday outside a police station in Ciudad Victoria, the capital of northeastern Tamaulipas state, causing some damage but no injuries, police said.



"The explosion damaged two Rural Police patrol cars that were parked nearby, but there were no injuries," the city's Public Security chief Jose Ives Soberon Tijerina told AFP by telephone.



It was the second car bomb set off in Mexico in recent weeks, after an explosives-packed vehicle killed four people in northern Ciudad Juarez on July 15.
