LAS CRUCES, NM - It's an all too familiar scene. Houses of worship being targeted. This time, explosions at two churches in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

One explosion destroyed a mailbox at the Calvary Baptist Church. The other, in a trash car, at the nearby Holy Cross Catholic Church, which shattered the building's windows.

Both explosions happened during Sunday morning services.

No one was hurt in either of the explosions, although parishioners had to be evacuated to safety.

Now, police are investigating them as possible bombings, looking to see if the two were connected.

New Mexico Governor  Susana Martinez sent a message to the perpetrator(s), "If your intention was to bring fear to those who worship, you have failed.  Our faith is too strong, and our fellowship is unbreakable."
