Alleged White Supremacist Arrested For Terrorism

A 22-year-old Italian linked to white supremacist groups was arrested Friday on terrorism charges, Italian police said. 

 The man is accused of terrorist association and incitement to commit racist and anti-Semitic attacks, also through the spread of propaganda. 

 He was apprehended in the northwestern port city of Savona, a statement said. 

 Police also searched the homes of 12 suspected associates in other cities, including Turin in the north and Sicily's capital Palermo. 

 Italy's fringe, sometimes violent, far-right groups have roots in the country's Fascist dictatorship from 1922 to 1943 under Benito Mussolini. 

 In 2018, a neo-Nazi sympathizer fired on a dozen African migrants in the central town of Macerata, injuring six. 

 The attack was an apparent response to the killing of a young Italian woman blamed on a Nigerian drug dealer.
