Today In History: Bomb blast in KL injures eight

19 October 1973, Kuala Lumpur: A bomb explosion outside the Lincoln Cultural Centre injured seven city council workers and a passer-by.

Police believed the bomb was planted among vegetables in a plastic pail outside the centre minutes before it exploded.

Police did not establish a motive immediately but the centre was the target of student demonstrations a few days earlier against US involvement in Arab-Israeli war.
