Milan, Italy - Three bombs shattered windows in Milan early yesterday morning. A McDonalds, a Blockbuster Video Store, and a bank were damaged by the attacs, which is believed the work of anarchists. Earlier this month three other bombs exploded outside a paramilitary police barracks in the same city and was credited to the anarchist group Cooperativa Artigiana Fuoco e Affini (The Cooperative of Hand-Made Fire and Related Items.) According to media reports these bombings were done by supporters of the anarchist prisoner Massimo Leonardi. Massimo Leonardi was arrested in October 2003 for allegedly beating up an undercover police officer who infiltrated an anarchist protest group. He was accused in the press of being behind a series of letter bomb.
