Rome, March 1 - Police tightened security in Rome
on Friday after two incidents involving shootings in different
parts of the capital.
Late Friday afternoon two people were injured in a shooting
in the outlying Prenestina district in east Rome after a car
carrying two people drew alongside their Smart and the passenger
opened fire.
The victims, both Romans aged 23, are receiving hospital
treatment for shoulder and leg injuries while police are trying
to identify the vehicle used by their aggressors.
Earlier in the day a former member of the leftist Red
Brigades terrorist group, Giorgio Frau, 56, was killed during a
failed robbery assault on a security van near the Basilica of St
Mary Major and the central Rome Termini train station.
A security guard, 48-year-old Antonio Domenico Di Salvo
from Caserta, suffered injuries to the arm and leg in the
attack.
Two accomplices fled the scene on foot but were later
apprehended.
One was Claudio Corradetti, 41, on special release from
Sulmona prison in Abruzzo, where he is serving a 20-year
sentence.
The second was Massimo Nicoletti, 34, who also has a
previous conviction.
The authorities have brought forward the planned deployment
of an additional 200 specialised police officers in Rome in
response to the shootings.
The reinforcements will be deployed over the next 24 hours
in areas thought to be at greatest risk of violence.
