Anarchists demonstrate against arrests of letter bomb suspects

Protesters hurl stones at newspaper offices and staff

Turin, April 12 - Several hooded protesters who broke away from a larger group demonstrating in Turin on Friday reportedly threw stones at the windows of the La Stampa newspaper offices and at staff members, injuring one man. An editor, photographer and driver from the publication were trapped in a car when several anarchist demonstrators began hurling stones, striking the driver on the wrist and arm. Police said that approximately 50 anarchists were protesting Thursday's arrest of three suspects in a letter bomb sent to the La Stampa offices on Tuesday that failed to detonate. Earlier on Friday, the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) together with the International Revolutionary Front (FRI) claimed responsibility for the letter bomb, saying that it was 'dedicated' to two of the group's members, Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, arrested in September for the kneecapping of Roberto Adinolfi, the CEO of Ansaldo Nucleare, a Genoa-based power company. Last May, members of FAI attacked and shot Adinolfi in the legs as he left his Genoa home to go to work. "La Stampa is no more than a paper of the regime, so it is a target of our war against the state and society that sustains and legitimizes its existence every day," said Friday's letter signed by FAI. Anti-terrorist investigators said that they had "expected" a vendetta attempt by the group and that they were sure it "was not over".
