Maryland - Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti condemned a school bombing that killed one teenager and seriously injured five others in the southern city of Brindisi on Saturday.

On the margins of a G8 summit at Camp David in the United States, Monti described the bombing as a "tragic" and "criminal" act that was "without precedent".

Monti also expressed his condolences to the victims of the attack, which has plunged Italy into shock.

It is not yet known who carried out the blast.

The explosive was composed of three gas canisters with a timer device hidden in a container next to a wall just outside the school, Italian media reported.
