Incendiary bottles thrown towards US consulate in Florence – News

Two incendiary bottles were thrown last night towards the United States consulate in Florence. According to what was learned, the bombs were thrown by one or more people from a side street but did not reach the building and exploded on the street. The Carabinieri intervened on site, alerted by the surveillance of the diplomatic headquarters. Investigations to trace the perpetrators are in full progress. The episode occurred around 4 o’clock last night.


The bottles caused blazes on the asphalt and at the moment there is no damage to property or to people.


The area is under video surveillance and the police investigations have already examined the available images. The Florence prosecutor’s office has already been informed.


The US consulate in Florence is headed by a career diplomat and is located in Lungarno Vespucci.


The building covers the perimeter of a block and has been protected and monitored for years, also keeping the transit of vehicles at a distance, to prevent disorder and attacks. The side overlooking the Arno river is pedestrian only.


Whoever threw the incendiary bottles would have acted from a side street, at a distance that would prevent them from hitting the building and, perhaps, even from being recognized.
