Three people coming from Italy were arrested ten days ago. They are suspected of having planned an explosive attack against the IBM centre at Rüschlikon.
The IBM research centre at Rüschlikon and its future site dedicated to nanotechnologies could have been in the aim of an explosive attack.
During an apparently routine control the Zurich police arrested on April 15 already two men and a woman in a car that had come from Italy. According to a spokesman, police discovered a large quantity of explosive material, and a claiming letter from an Italian group qualified eco-terrorist and called « Il Silvestre ». The three people, one of whom is a Swiss citizen domiciled in Italy, are being held in custody.
IBM, in partnership with the EPFZ, is building, for 94 million francs, a new laboratory that will be dedicated to electronic applications of nanotechnologies. The centre is due to open in 2011.
