One student died and several were injured after a bomb exploded in front of a school in the southern Italian city of Brindisi, a police official said.
- Italy is on maximum alert for terrorism after recent attacks targeting the tax-collection agency Equitalia and this month’s shooting of a nuclear-industry executive in Genoa, la Repubblica reported May 13, citing Interior Minister Anna Maria Cancellieri. The Brindisi school is named after anti-mafia prosecutor Giovanni Falcone’s wife, Francesca Morvillo, a judge who was killed in a 1992 bombing in Sicily along with her husband and several police officers.
- “The government aims to firmly fight every kind of crime and promotes cohesion among political and social parties to prevent the return in our country of subversive temptations,” Prime MinisterMario Monti said in an e-mailed statement after speaking with President Giorgio Napolitano.
- Investigators are working on “several hypotheses,” Interior Minister Anna Maria Cancellieri told the news channel, without elaborating. “It’s an anomalous fact, which worries us,” she said.
