Police in Helsinki are investigating whether or not Finnish anarchists had anything to do with the unexploded bomb that was found in Pasila on Friday.
A message appeared on a pro-anarchist website on Monday claiming responsibility for the canister bomb. Police say that the message included information that had not been revealed in public before.
However, police say that the information would have been available to people other than the perpetrator, because the canister had been left in a conspicuous location before anyone reported it to the police.
