Davos explosion work of activists

LEFT-WING activists claimed responsibility for a small explosion yesterday that broke windows at a hotel in Davos, close to where top executives were meeting, but nobody was hurt.

“A huge boom went off. The whole ceiling lifted,” said Devin Wenig, chief executive of Thomson Reuters’ Markets division.

The main programme at the World Economic Forum meeting, addressed by French President Nicholas Sarkozy and former US President Bill Clinton yesterday, was not affected.
