Two hurt in armed attack on security van

Robbers blocked road with burning vehicle and opened fire

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 30 - Two security guards were injured on Wednesday when a gang of criminals opened fire during the robbery of an armoured cash-transport car in Sardinia.
    The gang blocked the 131 'Carlo Felice' state highway in northern Sardinia between the junctions for Thiesi and Giave and started shooting at the security van, sources said.
    A thick cloud of smoke could be seen from a distance.
    Traffic has been halted in both directions of the highway, which connects the cities of Cagliari and Sassari.
    Police subsequently found the vehicle used by the gang to get away.
    The loot from the robbery was scant, the sources said. (ANSA).
