Tuesday night, the L-A Times cited two law enforcement sources who said "the explosion was likely caused by a package that was delivered to the location, but cautioned that it would be speculative to say the blast was intentional".

The official was briefed on the investigation, was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The other woman was bleeding from her head.

"At this point, we do not believe this was an accident", said Paul Delacourt, special agent in charge of the FBI's field office in Los Angeles.

The blast, which blew out almost the entire first floor, sent plumes of white smoke into the air and debris flying into the parking lot.

"We can not say exclusively this explosion was intentional", Sawyer said.

"And the ground shook", he told CNN.

Dong Shin said he had seen "fire, smoke, insulation popping out of the walls, a lot of scared people running around, a lot of commotion".
