Italy: Eco-anarchists arrested for possession of explosives

from the press via culmine, translated by war on society:

Milan, June 15, 2011 – Two Italian boys aged 26 and 35 were arrested last night at about 3:30 at the Lambrate train station with homemade incendiary shells in backpacks. They were then arrested for possession of explosive material.

The two were in the station but they fled the view of some officials, attracting the attention of police who were then able to stop them. Checks determined the two were undocumented and already known to police for numerous precedents. One of them was found to belong to the eco-anarchist scene and the police have ordered a search of his apartment, which has led them to discover pyrotechnic and arsonist material, all homemade, a fuel tank, ski mask and wig.
