Italian police have detained two people suspected of damaging a coronavirus vaccination centre in the northern city of Brescia with two incendiary devices last month.

The two suspects, both in their 50s, are accused of terrorism, a public prosecutor was quoted as saying by news agency ANSA on Saturday.

Defence Minister Lorenzo Guerini praised the Carabinieri police for the successful operation, saying the arrests had been made within a short time-frame.

No one was injured during the attack on April 3 when two petrol bombs had, among other things, burst the wall of a marquee at the vaccination centre.

Photos showed a large burn mark was visible.
