The FBI added an alleged animal rights bomber from Sonoma County to its list of “Most Wanted” terror suspects Tuesday, underscoring the agency’s increasing focus on such activists by lining him up next to Osama Bin Laden and 22 other Islamic extremists.
Daniel Andreas San Diego, 31, a former resident of tiny Schellville who is believed by authorities to be hiding out in Costa Rica, is the first domestic terror suspect to be added to a list that officials created a month after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
San Diego is accused of detonating pipe bombs in 2003 at a pair of firms, Chiron Corp. in Emeryville and Shaklee Corp. in Pleasanton. No one was hurt in the early morning attacks, though the FBI contended Tuesday that San Diego “intended to cause serious injury or death.”
Investigators believe the firms were targeted because they had done business with Huntingdon Life Sciences, a New Jersey laboratory that conducts experiments on animals for clients.
