A new terrorist organisation called 'Morning Light Movement' (Bewegung Morgenlicht) has claimed responsibility for a bomb attack on the offices of staffing group Randstad in the centre of Frankfurt during the night from Sunday to Monday this week.
The terrorists have sent a letter to Germany's top selling tabloid Bild in order to protest against temporary employment, which they refer to as 'modern slavery'. They said "with this action we protest against temporary employment which is immoral, against common decency and exploits human beings."
Police spokesman Alexander Loehr told Bild "at midnight on Sunday masked people threw a lit petrol bomb into the letter box of Randstad Deutschland. Fire broke out and the heat destroyed a shopping window. The interior of the building filled up with smoke."
The fire brigade arrived within minutes, thereby limiting damages to 15,000 Euro. Nobody was hurt in the event.
The terrorist action follows the recent so-called 'Schlecker Scandal' where Europe's largest drugstore chain had made large numbers of staff redundant in order to re-employ them via an in-house temporary employment agency at vastly reduced rates.
The State criminal police and State security have been put on highest alert. The authorities fear that the terrorist movement, which is responsible for previous terrorist attacks on banks in Frankfurt and even on the State Governor (Minister Praesident) Roland Koch, might turn into a modern version of the infamous 'Bader Meinhof Gang', which caused chaos in Germany in the 1970's.
Randstad are not offering any comments on this event while there is an ongoing police investigation.
