Italian arrests linked to neo-fascists after stash of weapons uncovered
Police in northern Italy have detained three men, including one linked to a neo-fascist Italian political party, after uncovering a huge stash of automatic weapons, material featuring Nazi symbols and a three-metre missile.
“During the operation, an air-to-air missile in perfect working order and used by the Qatari army was seized,” police said of the 245kg (540lb) Matra missile.
“This is a significant seizure, with few precedents in Italy,” said Turin police commissioner Giuseppe De Matteis.
The missile, 3.54 metres (more than 11ft) long was made in France and Del Bergiolo had been hoping to sell it for 470,000 euros (£423,000), according to Italian media reports.
The missile was “without explosive charge, but re-armable by people specialised in the field,” police said
