Austria hunts letter bombers

A letter bomb sent to the step-mother of Austria's interior minister is the work of the extreme-rightist group or individual responsible for five earlier series, a senior police officer said.

Chief Inspector Robert Sturm said the letter bomb, which exploded on Monday while being examined by police, was "with certainty" made by the so-called Bayuvarian Liberation Front, the rabidly anti-foreigner group behind most of over a dozen letter bombs posted since December 1993.
