Mexico City: An explosion rocked the headquarters of Mexico`s National Human Rights Commission, the organization said Thursday, though no injuries were immediately reported. 

The blast took place in Ecatepec, outside Mexico City, according to the organization`s director Luis Raul Gonzalez Perez.

He condemned the attack, and called on authorities to launch a "prompt investigation into the facts, and punish those responsible."

In May, an explosive device hit a Mexican federal police building and another blew up in front of the National Electoral Institute in a northern city of the violence-plagued country.
