Migrants Investigated Over Bombing of Populist Salvini Party Office

A pair of Moroccan migrants in Italy are under investigation in connection with the bombing of an office of populist Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s League party.

The attack occurred in January and saw the front door of the League office in San Valentino Torio damaged following an explosive blast that was downplayed by left-wing politicians as “Christmas fireworks,” Il Giornale reports

Prosecutors say that the two main suspects in the attack are 41-year-old Abderrahim S. and 37-year-old Moktar J. who are being investigated under suspicion of detonating explosives.  The pair were identified with the help of CCTV footage.

Mariano Falcone, regional deputy coordinator for the League in Salerno, said that while the damage to the building was not extensive, “It is an attack against Matteo Salvini and against the League” and called the attack “disturbing.”
