A Italian court in Catanzano cleared prominent rightist Stefano Delle Chiaie and a second man of multiple murder in a verdict that left one of Italy's worst bombings still unsolved after 20 years and nine court hearings. Delle Chiaie and Massimiliano Fachini received full acquittals in the 1969 bombing, which killed 16 people and injured 88 at a bank in Milan. Delle Chiaie, alleged leader of the rightist National Vanguard movement, was deported from Venezuela in 1987 and had been in jail since then. Fachini is serving a life sentence imposed last July for the bombing of a Bologna railway station in 1980 that killed 85 people.
