Rome, June 4 - The suicide rate in Italy jumped by
40% in the first quarter of this year compared with the same
period in 2012, according to a human-rights report released
Tuesday.
In almost half of these suicides, the "precarious" economic
situation was cited as a cause, and loss of employment was named
in 28.1%, said the Report on Global Rights 2013.
It found that fully 121 people were reported dead by their
own hand in the 15-month period that began in January 2012 and
continued through the first three months of this year.
That includes 89 in all of 2012, and 32 in the first three
months of this year, said researcher Sergio Segio.
The largest group of suicides - 30% - occurred in Italy's
northeast areas, followed by almost 26% in the centre and 14.6%
in the south.
