Swiss Police Arrest Terrorist Suspect
Authorities arrested an armed Italian man suspected of being a member of the Red Brigades terrorist group, a Swiss official said Wednesday.
The spokesman for the federal prosecutor’s office, Josef Herrmann, said Italian authorities had not requested the extradition of 28-year-old Antonio De Luca, who was arrested Sept. 22 in Basel while on a train from Paris.
But Italian media reports Wednesday said De Luca was turned over to Italian authorities after his arrest.
Herrmann said De Luca was carrying a pistol and ammunition when he was arrested.
