A second letter bomb injured two men Tuesday following a letter bomb Monday that injured one person in the UK.  British police suspect animal rights extremists of these bombings due to evidence found at the scenes.  In 2006, Senator James Inhofe introduced and passed the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act which address animal rights extremists’ criminal behavior in the United States.

UPDATE: The Washington Post ran this stroy today (Click Here) about the recent bombings writing:

"At least six people have been injured by seven letter bombs in Britain over the past three weeks, in what police said could be a campaign by animal rights extremists or a disgruntled motorist fed up with this country's automobile laws -- or both."
