Mail Bomb Injures 3; Arizona City’s Diversity Director Targeted


A mail bomb exploded Thursday in the hands of Scottsdale’s diversity director.

Don Logan, director of Scottsdale’s Office of Diversity and Dialogue, suffered serious burns on his hands and arms in the 1 p.m. explosion at his office near Scottsdale City Hall. A mailroom employee delivered the letter-size package to Logan, to whom it was addressed, in his cubicle.

Logan’s secretary and a co-worker suffered minor injuries.

The Arizona Republic reported that city officials said they had no reason to believe race or Logan’s position provided a motive for the bombing. Logan is black.
