High-speed rail protesters blamed in fresh attack


Turin, September 12 - Protesters against the
controversial high-speed TAV rail project between France and
Italy were blamed Thursday for a fresh attack on a company
involved in the project.
Tear-gas shells were also found at a construction site in
the Susa Valley east of Turin where a storage container with
plastic items inside was set on fire.
Attackers also tried to set the tires of a piece of heavy
equipment on fire, but were unsuccessful, police said.
The words 'No TAV' were found scrawled on the equipment,
police said.
The Lyon-Turin high-speed link in the Susa Valley, a joint
Italy-France project, has triggered protests throughout Italy
for several years, some involving violent clashes with police,
vandalism, threats and disruption of highway traffic.
Opponents say the project threatens sensitive environmental
areas and will cost too much public money, while supporters
argue it will cut down on vehicle traffic and pollution.
