AMSTERDAM – Police in the US city of Denver are investigating whether there may have been a link between a series of bombs in the city and extreme animal rights activists in the Netherlands.

The investigators say that the explosives used in Denver are the same as those used by extremist animal rights activists in the Netherlands.

The homemade explosives were reportedly used in the Netherlands in the past to set fire to freight trucks for the transport of livestock.

The police are examining a suspect's computer to see whether he was working with activists or a terrorist movement, US media reported on Tuesday.

The suspect Grant Barnes (24) has been charged after several bombs were placed under seven SUVs.

The Denver police and federal investigators had never seen bombs of this particular type before, but discovered examples using precisely the same equipment on a website of the Dierenbevrijdingsfront (Animal Liberation Front).
