    MEXICO CITY – An anti-technology group calling itself "Individuals Tending to Savagery" was responsible for a package bomb that injured two university professors just outside Mexico City, a state prosecutor said Tuesday.

    Mexico's Attorney General's Office announced that a suspicious envelope presumbly containing explosives was found at Mexico's National Polytechnical Institute on Tuesday, though it didn't detonate.

    The office has opened investigations into both incidents, it said in a statement late Tuesday.

    The explosion Monday at the Monterrey Technological Institute's campus in the State of Mexico on the outskirts of the capital Monday injured two professors, one of whom was involved in robotics research. Neither suffered life-threatening injuries.

    Mexico State Attorney General Alfredo Castillo said at a news conference that the group's involvement was identified from a partially destroyed note found at the scene.

    Castillo said the group opposes experiments with nanotechnology and has staged attacks on academics before.

    "The ITS is a movement that, in accordance with its ideals, opposes any development of neo- or nanotechnology anywhere in the world, and they are linked to attacks in several different countries of Europe, including Spain and France," Castillo said.
