That’s the funny thing about the Tiny Minority of Extremists: Bit by bit, the number of known members always seems to be growing. An update on this story. “Italy: Two suspects arrested in military barracks attack,” from AdnKronos International, October 13:
Milan, 13 October (AKI) – Two suspects and alleged accomplices were arrested early on Tuesday in connection with the attack against army barracks by a Libyan man, Mohammed Game, in the northern Italian city of Milan on Monday.
Italian media reports say an Egyptian and a Libyan were arrested by police after they interrogated friends and family members. The Egyptian man helped Game reach the barracks, while the Libyan suspect helped Game in finding the explosives.
More than 100 kilogrammes of explosives containing ammonium nitrate were seized at a house near Game’s.
Cue the obligatory statements from “shocked” associates that a decent fellow like this would do such a thing:
Meanwhile, Game’s wife Giovanna said she was “shocked” by the news and would have never suspected he could carry out a terror attack.
On Monday, an Italian soldier was injured after 35-year-old Game exploded a bomb hidden inside a toolbox at the entrance of the ‘Santa Barbara’ barracks. The man is said to have entered the courtyard of the barracks on foot, where he was confronted by a military guard.
He then detonated the rudimentary explosives, which were reportedly made of solid nitrate.
The toolbox where the man hid the explosive device contained two more kilogrammes of explosives, and according to reports, it only partially detonated.
Authorities have said if the entire load had detonated, there would definitely have been deaths….
