Bomb explosion hits Italy school
A bomb exploded in front of a school in southern Italy today, killing a 16 year-old girl and wounding at least six others, two seriously, authorities have confirmed
The explosion, near the entrance of a girls' school named after the wife of murdered anti-Mafia judge Giovanni Falcone, occurred as pupils were preparing to enter the school at the start of the school day, which in Italy includes Saturdays.
Authorities said two gas canisters appear to have been placed in rubbish containers at the school, which local media said was located near the main court in Brindisi, a port city located in Apulia, on the "heel" of Italy.
Shocking development in italy today . There are fingers being pointed at the Mafia but are they now so low that they will target school children ? Is this to be part of a campaign or a once off ?
