The World : 13 Convicted in Italy Blast

Four Italian neo-Fascists were convicted of multiple homicide and sentenced to life imprisonment in the 1980 bombing that killed 85 people at the Bologna railroad station. Nine others were convicted of offenses related to the Aug. 2 bombing that devastated a waiting room packed with holiday travelers, injuring about 200 people. Eight defendants were acquitted of involvement in the blast, Europe's bloodiest postwar extremist attack, following an 18-month trial. Valerio Fioravanti and Francesca Mambro, husband and wife, and Massimiliano Fachini and Sergio Picciafuocu were sentenced to life in prison, the maximum punishment in Italy.
