Terrorist cell arrested in Puglia

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

This morning’s news from Puglia is disturbing. While I’ve seen reports of organized crime operating in the region from within Italy and from illegal immigrants, this is the first time I’ve seen news like this. If I see any further information, I will post it here.

This article is from this morning’s La Gazzette del Mezzogiorno:

Italian police dismantle Islamist terrorist cell
Group based in Puglia with international contacts

(ANSA) – Rome, April 30 – Italian police said Tuesday that they had dismantled an Islamic terrorist cell based in the southern region of Puglia with links to major international figures involved in terrorism. Bari prosecutors said six people were being arrested in Italy and abroad on suspicion of international terrorism association and instigation of racial hatred.
