death in florence

A 50-year-old Italian right-winger turned his .357 Magnum on the African vendors in the Piazza Dalmazia street market in Florence, killing two and wounding three others before shooting himself, the Corriere della Sera reports. In response, 300 mostly Senegalese peddlers massed in Piazza Duomo. One marcher told the Guardian, "Don't tell us he was a madman, because if he was he would have killed whites as well as blacks." The Italian far-right, anti-immigration organisation Casapound said on Tuesday that the shooter was a "sympathiser" who had frequented one of its centers in Tuscany, the Guardian added.
