Italy: Moroccan would-be convert 'hangs himself'
Prosecutors are probing the death of a 22-year-old Moroccan immigrant who wanted to convert from Islam to Catholicism. Said Bouidra was found hanged in the central Italian port city of Civitavecchia outside Rome late Wednesday.
Bouidra's family was reported to have bitterly opposed his decision to convert to Catholicism and to had threatened and beaten him.
Earlier on Wednesday he had tried to drown himself in the sea but had been saved by Italian paramilitary 'Carabinieri' police and port officials, news reports said.
