Rio 2016: Bomb squad investigates blast near men’s cycling race

A blast heard and felt near the finish line of the men’s cycling race during the Rio Olympics was an unattended backpack being detonated by event security, media reports said Saturday.

The local bomb squad detonated the backpack, Reuters reported, citing a witness, which came on the heels of another bag destroyed by law enforcement Friday night during the Olympic opening ceremony. The bag detonated on Saturday was believed to have belonged to a homeless man, the report said, but all unattended objects must be destroyed.
