Ecoterrorism still with us

The story of a thwarted terrorist attack on an IBM nano facility in Switzerland didn’t get much media coverage — the most substantial story I could find was the UK Daily Mail here. Members of an anarchist/environmental group were stopped it appears by accident on their way to the target with bombs ready to go.

It’s a reminder, when the focus is on Islamist terrorism, that environmental terrorism is still significant.

Note also the firebombing of an Ottawa Bank, claimed to be by anarchists, which also received almost no media coverage.

I don’t quite know what to make of media lack of interest; maybe some implicit presumption that environmental or anarchist terrorism is less of a global problem?
