    Background: Terrorist bombings hit San Francisco, San Mateo and Sacramento in California on Saturday as black revolutionary leader George Jackson was buried after being shot dead a week ago while escaping from San Quentin prison. Jackson, aged 30, had spent 12 years of his life in jail. The bomb explosions, which caused thousands of dollars worth of damage, were all at correction and rehabilitation centres. Underground organisations later claimed credit for the explosions, saying they were in protest at Jackson's death. No injuries were reported.
