A man in his seventies has admitted setting off a small bomb near to the Icelandic Prime Minister’s office around two weeks ago.
The man was working alone and the police now consider their investigation complete. Vísir.is reports that the man was released on bail yesterday.
A statement from the Reykjavík police force states that the man did not intend to cause injury or damage to property with his stunt; but rather to impress certain messages upon the government through the protest signs he had erected beforehand.
The man is reported to have stood near to the bomb as it went off, as a clear sign that he meant it to cause no lasting damage.
The man was arrested on Friday following a raid on his house which revealed equipment and incriminating evidence; as well as the car police had been looking for.
