Bomb in Swiss Nuclear building in Olten

Just noticed the following news on Bloomberg. looks like no serious injuries, hope it stays like that

Bomb explodes at UBS bank in Switzerland; two injured
Geneva (DPA) -- A parcel bomb exploded on Thursday in northern
Switzerland at a building belonging to UBS bank, injuring two people.
The explosion occurred just after 8am (0600 GMT) in the city of
Olten, in the canton of Solothurn, according to the news website 20
Minuten.
Cantonal police said there was no immediate claim of
responsibility.
The injured people face no direct threat to their lives, but
further information on their condition was not immediately available.

It was Swiss Nuclear. There were GreenPeace activists at our door this morning since we own part of two nuclear plants in Switzerland.

Re: Bomb in UBS branch in Olten

First off, who BOMBS Swiss Nuclear to protest nuclear? Couldn't they think of a more effective protest method than the mixture of BOMBS and nuclear anything?

Second, with the recent fire and explosion at the Olten train maintenance depot, Olten is really becoming the "hot" place to be!

Re: Bomb in UBS branch in Olten

it is still bad news but the fact that the threat was directed at the nuclear facility rather than a bank with lots of branches somehow makes the issue lighter

Re: Bomb in UBS branch in Olten

soon enough Gadaffi will claim responsibility claiming he wants to change
the world to a healthy and good environment.

Crazy that these things happen here in Switzerland, news that you rather expect in the middle east.

Parcel bombs? I'd expect them more in UK and US. (Probably other places too, but that's where I hear about them most)

Die Post/La Poste is obviously more reliable, for the perps. timing schedule.
However this came through the Post's sorting machines, whereas a Nano got all chewed up.

Re: Bomb in UBS branch in Olten

Why can't people simply educate themselves and make informed, rational arguments instead of resorting to violent outbursts like this??

Anarchists behind letter bomb attack in Olten


The Federal Prosecutor’s Office says investigations are being coordinated with the authorities in Italy and Greece where two similar attacks were carried out this week.

“We have indications that the same group is behind the attack against a military target in Italy and a prison director in Greece,” Carlo Bulletti, in charge of investigations at the prosecutor’s office, told journalists on Friday.

The same group is believed to be behind last year’s bombing of the IBM research centre in Rüschlikon outside Zurich. It is also said to have sent letter bombs to the Swiss and Chilean embassies in Rome last December.
