Bomb at Rome embassy likened to anarchist attack

greekembassyrome afp Bomb at Rome embassy likened to anarchist attack

Italian investigators on Monday said an attempted parcel bombing at the Greek embassy in Rome bore the hallmarks of a similar attack by an anarchist group at the Chilean and Swiss missions last week.

The package was “similar to those that exploded last week in the Chilean and Swiss embassies,” Salvatore Cagnazzo, a police spokesman, told AFP.

“The mail worker at the embassy opened it but it didn’t go off,” he said, adding that the package was then defused by bomb disposal experts.

The explosive device was contained in a large padded yellow envelope with a CD case inside and was intended to detonate when opened.

“There’s an anarchist group, a terrorist group that wants to send a signal on an international level,” the mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno, told reporters, adding that the city was now on “maximum vigilance.”

The interception of the parcel bomb for the Greek embassy was followed by around 10 false alarms at other foreign embassies around Rome.

Greece’s ambassador to Italy, Michael Cambanis, was quoted by La Repubblica daily on its website as saying that the parcel bomb had “arrived on Friday but no-one opened it because of the Christmas holidays.”

A police source in Athens told AFP that co-operation between Italian and Greek police was “closer” after the discovery of the package, while a justice ministry source said: “Italy’s judicial authorities have sought Greece’s help to determine possible links between Italian and Greek militant groups.”

Last Thursday two parcel bombs exploded at the Chilean and Swiss embassies here, injuring a Swiss mail worker and a Chilean diplomat.

Prosecutors on Monday said that their inquiry for suspected “terrorism” over last week’s bombs would now include the Greek embassy package.

Last week’s blasts were claimed by an Italian anarchist group calling itself the Informal Federation of Anarchy, or FAI under its Italian acronym.

Investigators have said they believe the claim is “reliable”.

“We have decided to make our voice heard with words and deeds. Let us destroy the system of domination… Long live anarchy,” read a charred note found at the scene of the Chilean embassy blast.

The statement was signed by the “Lambros Fountas Cell” — a reference to a Greek far-left activist killed in a shoot-out with police in March 2010.

In a suspected anarchist far-left plot in Greece last month, bombs were sent to foreign embassies in Athens and European government leaders.

More than a dozen packages containing explosives were sent in that plot, prompting Greece to suspend international mail for two days. At least four of the packages ignited or exploded, slightly injuring one person.

But the head of Italian police, Antonio Manganelli, on Monday said there was no apparent link between the attacks in Greece and the ones in Rome.

“So far no elements of material links between the wave of parcel bombs in Greece last month and the recent action in our country have emerged,” Manganelli was quoted by ANSA news agency as saying.

The FAI has claimed around 30 low-key attacks in Italy in recent years, starting with two small bombs set off in a rubbish bin outside the home in Bologna of then European Commission chief Romano Prodi in 2003.

The targets have been mainly police, prison authorities, immigrant detention centres and European Union institutions. Last week’s bombs are believed to be the first attack claimed by the FAI to have injured someone.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
