St. Johann im Pongau: Bomb attack on police station

The police station of St. Johann im Pongau was shattered by a bomb attack. One policeman was seriously injured.

Someone has placed an inconspicuous cable reel, which was filled with blasting agent, infront of the police station. Policemen thought that it was forgotten by construction workers, and decided to use it. When one policeman tried to connect the cable reel with the power supply system, the whole load burst open and injured the policeman on hands and ears.

The victim of the bomb attack had to be brought to hospital. It was the first bomb attempt on a police station in Salzburg. “The strategy was very malicious”, said the spokeswoman of the police headquarters in the federal state of Salzburg.

Crime scene investigation is already in full swing. DNA-binding were found on the cable.
