CORRIERE DELLA SERA (Italy)
MILAN – An anarchist group claimed responsibility Friday for the recent shooting of a top Italian nuclear energy executive, calling the victim "one of the many sorcerers of the atom."
The Milan daily Corriere della Sera received a lengthy text by regular post from the "Olga cell" of the Federazione Anarchica Informale (Informal Anarchic Federation), boasting of its targeting of Ansaldo nuclear's CEO Roberto Adinolfi, who was shot and wounded in Genoa on Monday by an unknown assailant.
The message, which vowed to strike other targets linked to Ansaldo's industrial holding group Finmeccanica, cited comments Adinolfi made after the Japanese nuclear disaster in Fukushima in which he downplayed the environmental impact of the accident.
"We have crippled Roberto Adinolfi, one of the many sorcerers of the atom," the document reads. "Taking a gun, choosing and tracking the target, coordinating mind and hand, were a required passage."
Adinolfi was discharged Friday from a hospital in Genoa, leaving in a wheelchair.
