‘Radicalized’ Italians among suspects in probe by DDA in Naples

Venice tax and finance police on Tuesday arrested four people – three Italians and a Libyan national – accused of smuggling weapons into Iran and Libya between 2011 and 2015, in a nationwide operation in Rome, Naples, Salerno and L’Aquila coordinated by the DDA anti-mafia police department in Naples.
The suspects are accused of smuggling weapons including assault rifles, surface-to-air missiles and helicopters into countries subjected to an embargo without the necessary authorizations from the government.
