1 ATM bombing per day in SA

In South Africa criminals have taken to blowing up ATM’s in order to make off with the cash in them. This Financial Mail article discusses the trend:

In the first five months of this year, 148 ATM blasts were carried out across SA – an average of one a day, and nearly three times the number in all of 2006.

Security analysts are growing increasingly concerned at the ease with which the bombers are able to obtain the mining explosives used in most bombings.
