Bari, February 1 - A journalist from the main news
channel of State broadcaster RAI was attacked by a mafia boss's
wife while she was trying to interview his relatives in Bari
Friday.
TG1 reporter Mariagrazia Mazzola was slapped in the face by
Lorenzo Caldarola's wife, who refused to be interviewed, sources
said.
"I wasn't insistent," Mazzola said as she boarded an
ambulance outside a local hospital.
"I was rather Anglo-Saxon," she said, "but I was attacked
with a slap-punch on the left cheek".
She added: "Long live the free press".
A wake was taking place in the house where the incident took
place, sources said.
Mazzola was taken to the ER at Bari's Policlinico Hospital,
where prosecutor Giuseppe Volpe also came.
The Puglia mafia, the Sacra Corona Unita (United Holy Crown,
SCU), is the fourth and smallest of Italy's four mafias.
The other three are 'Ndrangheta from Calabria, Cosa Nostra
from Sicily and the Camorra from Naples.
