PARIS, March 15, 2006 (AFP) - A man was killed and another wounded when a bomb went off in a booby-trapped car that was being driven in the northern Paris suburbs, police said Wednesday.

The bomb, which was placed under the seat of the driver, went off at around 12:00 noon (1100 GMT) on a slip-road of the A1 motorway in the suburb of La Courneuve.

The passenger was taken to hospital.

The car belonged to a man in his 70s known to the police for his financial affairs, and the most likely theory was a settling of accounts in the criminal underworld, police said.
