A suspected parcel bomb addressed to Deutsche Bank chief executive Josef Ackermann was intercepted at a Deutsche office in Frankfurt on Wednesday, a senior U.S. law enforcement official said.

The package was discovered around 1 p.m. Frankfurt time (7 a.m. EST/12:00 p.m. BT) in a mailroom, the official said. Initial analyses by investigators confirmed that it contained explosives and extra shrapnel, he told Reuters.

Do the bankers now see the violence inherent in the system?

I think the news is weird:
Why would a "senior U.S. law enforcement official" be in charge of an investigation on an attempted assault on a Swiss CEO in an office of a German bank located in Germany?

I don't believe the US official was in charge of the Frankfurt investigation. The way the Reuters story was written, it appears the US official was informed of the event so they could coordinate better security at the New York branch of the Deutsche Bank.

Probably. Funny thing is that the German branch of Reuters reported a different story denying the explosives story

The market doesn't need anything else to be afraid of right now, and the banks don't need any more excuses to pile on extra fees. I think I see a background check nad armed escort in the future for anyone who actually needs to see a live person when doing their banking. For a fat fee of course.
