An Italian anarchist group has claimed responsibility for a letter bomb sent to Josef Ackermann, chief executive of Deutsche Bank, and may have sent two more packages, investigators said on Thursday. The suspicious envelope, intercepted on Wednesday evening, has raised fears that a wave of protests against the failures and excesses of bankers could turn more violent, and prompted police across Europe to warn banks to be extra vigilant.
A hidden, rolled-up letter written in Italian from the Federazione Anarchica Informale (the Informal Anarchist Group, or FAI) spoke of "three explosions against bankers, banks, fleas and bloodsuckers," the German investigators said. "So it must be deduced from this that two more letter bombs may have been sent," the Criminal Investigations Office for the state of Hesse and Frankfurt prosecutors said in a statement.
Earlier they said initial tests had shown the letter bomb sent to Ackermann was operational.
