Group threatens bomb attacks in Slovakia

A group calling itself ‘BMG Atack’ (sic) has threatened terrorist bomb attacks on Slovak supermarkets and shopping malls unless the government agrees to compensate the thousands of people who lost money in the February and March collapses of unlicensed deposit funds BMG Invest and Drukos.

Letters warning of the attacks have been delivered to the president and prime minister. Police said they first received notice of the threat on June 7, since when they have searched some public sites without result. They have appealed to the public for help identifying the unknown perpetrators.
