Italy: "Mosques Springing Up like Mushrooms"
by Soeren Kern
More than 250 mosques across Italy have reached an agreement to create a new umbrella organization, the Italian Islamic Confederation (CII).
The CII will be controlled by Morocco, and will compete with an existing Muslim umbrella organization, the Union of Islamic Communities and Organizations in Italy (UCOII).
The UCOII, which is estimated to control 60% of the mosques in Italy, is closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.
