  • Bomb Kills Girl Outside School In Brindisi, Italy

    Quote:A bomb blast outside a school in the south Italian city of Brindisi has killed a teenage girl and injured five other people, at least one seriously.

    Students were arriving for Saturday morning lessons when a device planted in a waste bin exploded, city mayor Mimmo Consales told reporters.

    No-one said they had planted the device but Mr Consales suggested a Mafia link.

    A crowd of stunned local people gathered at the scene of the blast, which has shocked Italy.

    The school is named after Judge Francesca Morvillo Falcone, a victim of a notorious Mafia bombing in Sicily nearly 20 years ago.

    She was killed along with her husband, anti-Mafia judge Giovanni Falcone, on 23 May 1992.

    Prime Minister Mario Monti, who is at Camp David attending a G8 summit, said his government was determined to prevent a return to the violence of the past.

    He said the bombing was a "tragic" and "criminal" act that was "without precedent".

    French President Francois Hollande, also at the summit, expressed his country's "deep solidarity" with Italy in the face of the "odious attack".
