Jihad attack in Italy could have been far worse...

Only one injured, thank God...
An Italian soldier was injured on Monday after a Libyan man exploded a bomb hidden inside a toolbox at the entrance of the 'Santa Barbara' military barracks in the northern Italian city of Milan.

The 35 year-old Libyan tried to enter to enter the barracks at the same time a military vehicle was entering the gate. However, his car was stopped by a military guard.

The man then detonated a bomb. Some reports said he shouted: "The army must leave Afghanistan!"

The toolbox where the man hid the explosive device contained two more kilogrammes of explosives, and according to reports, it only partially detonated.

The injured Italian soldier was hit by ricochet splinters and received medical treatment on-site. The attack took place at 7:45am local time. Following the attack, the Libyan was taken to the Fatebenefratelli hospital in Milan where he is in critical condition.

The Libyan man suffered severe injuries to his face and eyesight and his hand has been amputated, according to medical sources at Fatebenefratelli hospital.

The (makeshift) bomb exploded only in part. There were more than 2 kgs of exposive left after the explosion, Italian sources says.

I hope his stump and what's left of his face hurts like hell as a reminder of his stupidity.

May his eye sight be spared so that he may see his own condition..
