Italian terrorists planned wave of raids, police say

Red Brigades terrorists planned a whole series of attacks on officials and buildings as a follow-up to the kidnapping of Brig. Gen. James L. Dozier, police said.

Besides a planned attack with bazookas and rockets on the national headquarters of the Christian Democratic Party in Rome, the terrorist targets included a Rome judge, a central police station, two police barracks, and two top security prisons - in a bid to free jailed terrorist leaders.

Police said elaborate details of the planned attacks were among documents seized in three Red Brigades hideouts found in Rome last weekend. They did not identify the officials or police buildings singled out for attack.
