Italy probes terrorism link to marriages
by Josephine McKenna
Anti-terror police are investigating arranged marriages between Italians and foreign nationals for potential terrorist infiltration.
Sources cited by Ansa said police fear Italian spouses are being recruited in squats and soup kitchens in Rome by a clandestine network that links them with would-be immigrants awaiting them in Egypt.
The prospective immigrants allegedly pay thousands of euros for these arranged marriages, according to the Ansa report.
