Del Rio Mayor Robert Garza was advised of the situation at 11:30 p.m. by the Fire Marshall who ordered the International Bridge closed until the bomb squad from Laredo, Texas could arrive.
The bridge remained closed until 5:00 a.m. this morning as a safety measure and also to await the arrival of the Laredo team who ordered the removal of the vehicle involved and took the bomb with them.
Many people were stuck in Del Rio, Texas as well as in Ciudad Acuna, Coahuila and had to sleep in their cars or go to a hotel.

If you would like to read the Del Rio News-Herald online edition of this story...well I regret to inform you they did not even mention it. They still have Christmas stories from LAST year! http://delrionewsherald.com/
I know many people do not go to Mexico because of the perceived danger, which I have never felt or I would not go. Yet here are these individuals calmly driving through Del Rio coming from who knows where with a bomb on board. Just goes to show that danger can be found anywhere.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
