Dec. 23: Forensic and Carabinier police officers inspect the area inside the Swiss Embassy in Rome. A package exploded Thursday at the Swiss Embassy in Rome, wounding one person, police said. The Foreign Ministry called it a "deplorable act of violence'' against the Swiss. The explosion occurred when the package was opened by an embassy staffer, who was wounded and subsequently taken to the hospital, said a spokesman at the carabinieri police in Rome. (AP)

Italian authorities are investigating the explosion of two parcel bombs that detonated at the Swiss and Chilean embassies, injuring two people.

Francesco Tagliente, Rome's police chief, said a third suspicious package found at the Ukrainian embassy was a false alarm. Tagliente addressed reporters as he arrived Thursday at the Chilean embassy, where witnesses said an explosion occurred shortly after 3 p.m., injuring one person.

Three hours earlier, a package bomb detonated inside an office in the Swiss Embassy, wounding a staffer who opened the parcel. The staffer -- who was not immediately identified -- suffered serious hand injuries, but his injuries were not life-threatening, Swiss ambassador Bernardino Regazzoni said.

A source close to the investigation told Fox News that authorities in Rome believe the bombing may be related to anarchists rather than terrorism.

This is a clear cut, it's the Illuminati. Dan Brown is finally getting some vindication of his asinine theories. There just has to be an Opus Dei connection.

When they find out who did this they will issue strongly worded letters to the perpetrators but not so strong as to offend.

Right, as long as nobody draws cartoons about it.
