Anarchists attack Swiss court

ANARCHISTS have claimed responsibility for an arson attack on a penal court in Switzerland.

At 2 a.m. Monday officials found a fire at the court entrance in Bellinzona, with the message "Fire for the courts — we defeat the state" spray painted in Italian on the walls.

Also on the walls was a circled A - the anarchist symbol.

In an interview with World Radio Switzerland, Major General Peter Regli, former director of Switzerland’s intelligence services, described an upsurge in anarchist activity across Europe and the world and warned that a network of anarchist cells was operating "without rules or regulations" in a bid to destroy capitalism.
