Italy: Turin airport has five laser attacks in August

Five laser attacks have occurred at the Turin-Caselle airport in August. All involved a green laser, located close to the airport, aimed at airliners on approach or while landing. Police are looking for the perpetrator. He or she would be charged with “publicly using unauthorized objects with a nature to offend.”

Class 3B and 4 lasers (for visible continuous output lasers, above 500 mW) have been banned in Italy since 1998, according to AvioNews.
