  • Description

    In Italy, a bomb has severely damaged a police station in a suburb of Rome.

    SYNOPSIS: A policeman on guard duty at the time was injured as the blast brought part of the building down on top of him. No-body has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Reuters report that another bomb went off in Florence the same day.

    At least 13 people have been killed and 24 injured in political violence in Italy this year. Last month two bombs were hurled at a Rome police station. Also in June the former chief of Genoa's anti-terrorist squad was shot dead in front of horrified passengers on a crowded bus. The Red Brigades guerrilla organisation have claimed responsibility for these and other violent incidents.

    Since the sentencing of two of their leaders to 15 years imprisonment the Red Brigades have vowed to continue their self-proclaimed "Proletarian revolution". Earlier this year they shocked Italy with the kidnapping and subsequent murder of former Prime Minister Aldo Moro.
