Two Moroccans arrested for League office bombing

Two Moroccan migrants in Italy have been arrested in connection with the office bombing of Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s League party.

    The attack occurred in January this year, targetting a League office in San Valentino Torio. The building was damaged following an explosive blast but the attack was downplayed by left-wing politicians as “Christmas fireworks,” according to Il Giornale.

    The main suspects of the bombing are 41-year-old Abderrahim S and 37-year-old Moktar J say prosecutors. They are being investigated under suspicion of detonating explosives after being identified on CCTV footage capturing the scene.

    Mariano Falcone, regional deputy coordinator for the League in Salerno, said that even though the damage to the building was not that extensive, “[i]t is an attack against Matteo Salvini and against the League”. He described the bombing attack as “disturbing”.

    The bombing attack followed after a call by the far-left Autonomous University Collective to assassinate Matteo Salvini. Throughout the country, the flames of hatred for the leader of the Northern League is being fanned by the media.

    At the University of Bologna, political science students learn that Salvini’s elected party belongs to the “politically violent extreme right”.

    “We must not let our guard down,” Falcone warned, adding that new groups have joined the ranks of far-left terrorists who committed acts of violence in Italy in the 1970s. After his deportation from Brazil, Cesare Battisti, one such far-left terrorist, recently admitted to murdering several people during that era.

    It is not the first time Salvini’s party offices have been attacked with explosives. In August last year, an office in Treviso was targetted by Antifa members. They had fixed two separate explosive devices onto the building, one meant to lure police officers to the site, while a second one, filled with nails and metal fragments, would then go off.

    Police were able to disarm the second device before it exploded.

    Usually it is the anarchists and the non-globalists who strike, but the prosecutor in Nocera Inferiore has set his sights for the first time on two immigrants living in Striano (Naples) and Sarno (Salerno).

    Spokesperson Simone Di Meo explained to the Italian daily that there apartments were searched after the images of the municipal video surveillance circuit nailed them.

    Immediately after the arrest of the migrants, leftists tried to diminish the scope of the event. The mayor of San Valentino Torio, as well as president of the Province of Salerno, Michele Strianese who, after viewing the images of the video surveillance, said the “two young men who, after leaving a Christmas cracker on the ground, walk around peacefully on a Sunday afternoon”.

    The investigation by the prosecutor’s office of Nocera Inferiore showed the exact opposite however, revealing the emergence of violent protests against the League.
