Background: Fascists are being blamed for a series of bomb attacks which hit the northern Italian town of Savona during the last eleven days.
An 82-year-old woman died in hospital following one bomb attack on an apartment block. Two other people, both elderly, were seriously injured in that attack.
The bombing came shortly after the head of Italy's anti-terrorism forces, Emilio Santillo, had left the city.A nd there was a theory in police circles that Savona was being used by a terrorist organisation to practice bombing techniques prior to more widespread attacks.
Though fifteen permanent road blocks were set up ringing the city, and public buildings and schools guarded, the attacks have continued. And among the explosions being investigated by police in Savona yesterday (23 November) was one outside a Carabinieri office.
