The recent episode of a cell-phone bomb exploded in a mobile shop in Tirana, draws the interest of Italian media. The prestigious magazine "Corriere della Sera" published an article on Friday raising the alarm that cell-phones bombs fabricated in Albania which may be used by the Italian mafia or jihadist organizations.
"The owner a mobile-shop in Tirana was seriously injured a few days ago while fabricating a cell-phone bomb. This incident is a clear indicator of the increasing tendency to fabricate similar devices in Albania which may then smuggled to neighboring countries like Italy and be used by the Mafia.
Likewise the fact that many of these mobile shops owners are directly related to the mosques raises suspicions that they may also contribute in terrorist acts with jihadist backgrounds," writes "Corriere della Sera".
The Italian magazine refers also to the recent seizure of three cell-phone bombs in a truck entering Montenegro from Albanian border. According to the magazine Italy was the country of destination of these explosive devices.
