Pirelli Factory a Potential Terrorist Target?
A report published by Italy’s La Stampa newspaper on August 12 suggests a possibility that Pirelli’s tyre manufacturing plant in Turin may be a planned target for terrorists. An anti-terror investigation has begun in Italy after police discovered detailed architectural plans for the Turin factory. While the report does not make clear where the plans were found, reference is made to an “encampment” inside a highway tunnel that is used by local homeless people.
Local residents informed police they saw a “suspicious” individual, complete with beard and Arab-style clothing, entering and leaving the tunnel. However, when police investigated they found nobody there, and the premises contained only household items including un-beardlike implements such as razors and shaving cream.
