  • Description

    Five bombs exploded in the northern Italian city of Milan on Saturday (3 June) damaging the Milan premises of three large United States companies. Among the debris from the explosions police found leaflets attacking United States policy in Indo-China.

    The three companies attacked were the Honeywell corporation, International Business Machines (IBM), and the Bank of America and Italy.

    All the explosions occurred within a fifteen minute period. There were no casualties.

    (The Milan bombings are the latest of a spate of attacks against United States buildings in Italy. On April 21st a bomb exploded in the courtyard of the United States Embassy in Rome, and on May 26 there was an explosion at the Rome office of the daily American newspaper).

    SYNOPSIS: A branch office of the Bank of America and Italy was one of the targets in a wave of bomb attacks in the Northern Italian city of Milan on Saturday.

    All the bombs exploded at the premises of United States companies in Milan. In the debris from the explosions, police found leaflets criticising United States policy in Indo-China.

    One of the bombs damaged the Milan office of International Business Machines, known worldwide as IBM. All the explosions occurred in the space of fifteen minutes. There were no casualties. The explosions were the latest in a spate of attacks against United States property in Italy.

    Two bombs exploded outside the Milan office of Honeywell Incorporated - and it was here that the greatest amount of damage was done.

    Leaflets in the debris accused Honeywell of making computers to programme the imperialist war. Almost as the bombs were exploding outside the city office of the company, another went off at a Honeywell transformer room about eleven miles (17 kms) away.
