  • Description

    TWO EXPLOSIVE CHARGES WENT OFF OUTSIDE THE HEADQUARTERS OF ITALY'S CHRISTIAN-DEMOCRAT PARTY IN ROME DURING LAST NIGHT. THEY DAMAGED THE ENTRANCE AND SHATTERED WINDOWS. A NIGHT WATCHMAN AND A POLICE CONSTABLE ON DUTY THERE WERE SLIGHTLY INJURED.

    THE BIG BUILDING STANDS IN A MODERN DISTRICT ON THE CITY'S SOUTHERN OUTSKIRTS. THE BLASTS TWISTED AN IRON GRILLE, CHIPPED STONE STEPS LEADING TO THE ENTRANCE, AND BLEW A HOLE IN THE PAVEMENT.

    SIGNOR MARIANO RUMOR, THE CHRISTIAN-DEMOCRAT PARTY SECRETARY, EXPRESSED HIS "INDIGNATION AT THE COWARDLY ATTACK." HE ADDED: "THE ATTACKERS, WHOEVER THEY MAY BE, ARE MISTAKE". IF THEY THINK THEY CAN INTIMIDATE US AND STOP US IN OUR VIGOROUS CAMPAIGN AGAINST ALL EXTREMISMS."
    DAMAGE WAS PUT AT ABOUT 30 MILLION LIRE (17,250 STERLING).

    (IN CATANIA, SICILY, A HOMEMADE BOMB EXPLODED DURING THE NIGHT OUTSIDE THE LOCAL HEADQUARTERS THERE OF THE ITALIAN SOCIALIST PARTY, WHICH IS ONE OF THE COALITION PARTNERS IN THE CENTRE-LEFT GOVERNMENT WITH THE CHRISTIAN-DEMOCRATS. SLIGHT DAMAGE WAS REPORTED.)
