Terror: risk of an attack on Italy ‘very high’
Italy has been on high terror alert since the Paris attacks in November.
While there has been “no specific or concrete information” about an attack, Alfano said “this does not make us rest easy”.
“We have information that shows the risk is very high; information and analysis that indicates the war in Syria and instability in Libya are dangerous for the whole of Europe,” he told RaiTre’s In mezz’ora.
Some 259 people were arrested on terror charges in Italy in 2015, with 67 of them being expelled from the country as a result. Several others have been arrested since the start of the year.
