An Italian anarchist group calling itself the Informal Ararchist Federation has claimed responsibility for a letter bomb which exploded at a state tax collection agency on Friday.
The bomb at the headquarters of Equitalia injured the company’s director-general, Marco Cuccagna, who lost part of one finger and damaged an eye, although his life was not in danger.
The group is also being linked to another letter bomb – addressed to Josef Ackermann, Chief Executive of Deutsche Bank – which was intercepted by police on Wednesday.
They also claimed responsibility for two parcel bomb attacks against the Swiss and Chilean embassies in Italy just before Christmas last year.
