A letter bomb explodes in a company related to nuclear energy in Switzerland

Geneva .- A letter bomb caused two injuries today to exploit Swissnuclear offices, the section on nuclear energy consortium including the three big energy groups in Switzerland. The blast occurred when the letter was opened and the two victims were hospitalized after suffering injuries to his head and chest, told the Swiss news agency ATS.

Swisselectric, which depends Swissnuclear, brings together companies Axpo, and Forces Drive Alpiq Bernois (FMB), which manage a total of five nuclear plants in Switzerland and presented in 2008 to the Federal Energy Office a request to build three new reactors. This attack coincided with the protest that made Greenpeace outside the headquarters of the Swiss power company Alpiq Holding to require its officers to withdraw the request for authorization to construct new nuclear plants.

Off the company premises in the town of Olten (Solothurn canton), the protesters displayed signs of protest and a large trash container, empty drums rattle as nuclear waste. Switzerland has five nuclear power plants (Beznau 1 and 2, Gösgen, Leibstadt and Mühleberg) contributing to 40 percent of electricity production in Switzerland.
