FRANCE ARRESTS FORMER MEMBERS OF ITALY EXTREMIST GROUP RED BRIGADES
Written by wave FM on April 28, 2021
France has detained seven former members of far-left Italian militant groups, including the Red Brigades.
The seven, and three other Italians still being sought, had been convicted of terrorism charges in Italy dating back to the 1970s and 1980s.
France had offered left-wing radicals protection from extradition under a controversial policy.
Italy’s Prime Minister MARIO DRAGHI welcomed the arrests, saying the crimes had “left a wound that is still open”.
