A nail bomb exploded at a telecommunications server station on the ground floor of an apartment building in Detva (Banská Bystrica Region) on Thursday, October 11, the TASR newswire reported.

There were dozens of locals in the building at the time of the blast, but no one was injured. The server station, however, was completely destroyed.

Banská Bystrica Regional Police spokesperson Jana Vrbická refused to give any further details, citing the ongoing investigation. However, local people reportedly opined that competition between two companies offering local telecommunications services might have been behind the attack. Police do not know who planted the bomb, which was packed with nails to increase its destructive capacity.
