Dynamite Found At Store In Paris

Post by shammy on Wed Dec 17, 2008 12:33 pm

A package of dynamite planted in a luxury Paris department store was found and removed by the police on Tuesday, rattling the nerves of Parisians at the height of the Christmas shopping season.

The store, Printemps, on the elegant Boulevard Haussmann, was just beginning to fill up with shoppers at 11 a.m. on Tuesday when the police swooped in, acting on a tip from a French news agency. They discovered five sticks of dynamite bound together with a cord in a restroom on the third floor of the men's store. There was no detonator with the dynamite, French officials said.

A previously unknown group calling itself the Afghan Revolutionary Front said in a warning mailed to Agence France-Presse that it had planted the explosives in the store. It demanded the withdrawal of French troops from Afghanistan and warned that it would strike again if President Nicolas Sarkozy did not bring the troops home by the end of February.

Interior Minister Michèle Alliot-Marie and the mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoë, rushed to the scene, where bomb-squad vans on the cordoned-off boulevard looked eerily out of place against a backdrop of colorful Christmas lights.
