Another, which did not explode, was also found. ‘They are trying to stop us, but violence and delinquency do not scare us,’ said the minister. According to the regional newspaper Corriere del Veneto, which reported the information, the incident allegedly occurred ‘probably Sunday 12 [August]’ and nobody was injured.
