FALN Claims Responsibility for 2 Bombings in New York City

A Puerto Rican nationalist group yesterday claimed responsibility for two bombings in New York City just after midnight Sunday, calling them actions against the FBI and the American Bank Note Company as “symbols of Yanki (sic) repression and exploitation.”

The group, whose name means Armed National Liberation Forces, also demanded release for four Puerto Rican nationalists who are in prison for 1954 shootings in Congress and another who is in prison for a 1950 attempt to assassinate President Harry S Truman.
