Former members of Italian Red Brigades arrested in France

PARIS (AP) — The French presidency says seven Italians convicted of domestic terrorism crimes have been arrested at their homes in France. Three others are still being sought. Five of those arrested were described by Italian police as former members of the Red Brigades, a group active in the 1970s and 1980s that carried out killings and kidnappings in Italy. The arrests on decades-old arrest warrants followed negotiations between the Italian and French governments after France had previously refused to act on the warrants. Among those arrested was a militant from the far-left group Lotta Continua (Struggle Continues) who was convicted of the 1972 slaying of Milan’s police chief.
