Buenos Aires: Authorities found a bomb on Wednesday at a theater where former Colombian president Alvaro Uribe was to deliver a speech.
"During an inspection, security personnel found the bomb in a lamp in the theater. It is of the type activated by cell phone," a judicial source told.
Uribe, known for his hardline policies against Colombia's leftist guerrillas during his eight years in office from 2002 to 2010, had been scheduled to deliver a speech at the Grand Rex theater on Thursday.
Uribe's speech to the WOM Leadership symposium 2012, a forum on management and leadership, had drawn calls from leftist groups for a demonstration to protest his presence.
