Bomb Hits PayPal Building in Silicon Valley

Posted on November 2, 2006

Wired is reporting that a bomb exploded at the eBay's PayPalbuilding in Silicon Valley. 45 employees were in the building but fortunately no one was injured.
No injuries resulted when what local fire officials said was an explosive device shattered a 6-foot-square window on the ground floor of the four-story building in San Jose. The explosion occurred outside a building exit.

Investigators were still trying to determine the nature of the device. "Whatever it was, it disintegrated," San Jose Fire Department Capt. Jose Guerrero said. "Whatever caused this was pretty strong."
Wired says about 45 PayPal employees were working the building at the time of the explosion, but the PayPal workers are reportedly already back at their offices. It is a very weird incident. We are glad no one was hurt.
