A police officer has been killed and dozens of people injured in an explosion in the Colombian capital Bogota.

The explosion happened near the bullring, where animal rights activists were preparing to hold a march.

The mayor's office said 30 people were injured, many of them believed to be officers deployed ahead of the protest.

The bullring has been the scene of weekly protests following the decision to reinstate bullfighting in the city.
