Three environmental activists have been jailed for over three years each for plotting the bombing of the IBM nanotechnology centre in Switzerland.
A 26-year-old Swiss-Italian from Ticino and an Italian couple aged 29 and 34 were found guilty by the Federal Criminal Court of conspiring to destroy the IBM centre in Rüschlikon, near Zurich, while it was under construction.
They were also found guilty of importing explosives into Switzerland, then illegally hiding and transporting them.
The court in Bellinzona sentenced the trio to terms ranging from just over three years to three years and eight months in the trial which ended on Friday.
