Two more held over army barracks bombing
Wednesday 14 October 2009
Italian police have detained two more suspects following a bomb attack on the main gate of the Santa Barbara army barracks in Milan by a 35-year-old Libyan man, who was seriously wounded in the explosion.
Anti-terrorism prosecutors said police had also found a large quantity of bomb-making chemicals during overnight searches. The motive for the attack on the barracks remains unclear. The explosion caused little damage to the barracks, and slightly wounded the guard who stopped the attacker.
Anti-terrorism prosecutor, Armando Spataro, said that another Libyan and an Egyptian had been detained overnight as suspected accomplices in the bombing. Mr Spataro later told a news conference that authorities had found 40kg of ammonium nitrate and other bomb-making substances. The ammonium nitrate is believed to have been purchased about a week ago by the Libyan man who carried out the attack.
