In Buenos Aires, two bomb attacks failed yesterday, according to the authorities in connection with the upcoming G-20 summit. Three suspects were arrested.
First, a couple in a cemetery had tried to put homemade explosives on the mausoleum of a former police chief, who was killed in 1909 by an anarchist. When attaching the woman was seriously injured, according to the news channel TN.
Bomb thrown in garden by judge
A few hours later, a man threw a homemade bomb package into the front yard of federal judge Claudio Bonadio’s apartment, which had instituted corruption cases against ex-president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. The bomb did not explode. The man was arrested by the judge’s guards.
„Both cases are undoubtedly linked to the upcoming G-20 summit,“ said Marcelo d’Alessandro, the security secretary of the City of Buenos Aires. The perpetrators are related to an anarchist group. In Buenos Aires, the heads of state and government of major industrialized and emerging economies will meet at the G-20 summit later this month. Around 20,000 security forces are to be deployed.
