Rome, April 29 - One of two Italian policemen shot
by a gunman on Sunday while Premier Enrico Letta's government
was being sworn in risks being paralysed, according to medical
reports.
Giuseppe Giangrande, a 50-year-old member of the
Carabinieri police force, suffered damage to his spinal cord
after being shot in the neck.
The other policemen suffered less serious leg injuries in
the incident that took place near to the Italian House and the
premier's office in central Rome.
Prosecutors said Luigi Preiti, a 49-year-old from the
southern town of Rosarno, wanted to shoot politicians he blamed
for his personal plight, after the loss of his job and the
breakdown of his marriage.
He is thought to have planned the attack several weeks ago
and to have worked alone.
Nevertheless, the gesture has been interpreted as a sign of
the desperation many in Italy are experiencing as the country
struggles to cope with its longest recession in 20 years.
Preiti is not thought to be suffering from mental illness,
although media reports say he had a problem with gambling on
video-poker slot machines.
