On Saturday, a machine was blown up in Schönenbuch in Basel-Country. The robbers took the cash and fled across the border into France.

Then yesterday another machine was attacked in a similar manner in the town of Alle in canton Jura. Police say several people were involved – and again fled across the border.

The amount of cash taken is not being released.

It’s currently not clear if the same gang is responsible for both robberies.
