'500 young inmates risk being radicalized in Italian jails'
Italy's chief anti-mafia and anti-terrorism prosecutor has warned that hundreds of minors in prisons for young offenders are at risk of being radicalized by extremists.
Franco Roberti warned that unless Italy acts now, the country "will find itself in the same situation as Brussels or the Parisian suburbs".
In an interview with La Repubblica, he said that 500 young Muslims in Italy's juvenile prisons risk becoming jihadists.
