(Bloomberg) May 13, 2012 — Italy is on maximum alert for terrorism after recent attacks targeting the tax-collection agency Equitalia and the shooting of Ansaldo Nucleare Chief Executive Officer Roberto Adinolfi, la Repubblica reported, citing Interior Minister Anna Maria Cancellieri.
Thirty anarchists are the focus of investigators and the army is committed to defending vulnerable targets, Cancellieri told Repubblica. Her comments come after two Molotov cocktails were placed outside Equitalia’s headquarters in Livorno, Italy yesterday, with one exploding, Repubblica reported.
That follows the discovery of a parcel bomb at Equitalia’s Rome headquarters on May 11, news service Ansa reported. Adinolfi was shot in the legs by two assailants on a scooter in Genoa on May 7, Repubblica reported then, describing the injury as non life-threatening.
