  • Description

    Thousands of police yesterday (Sunday) kept up their guard in the riot-torn Southern Italian city of Reggio Calabria. An uneasy calm had settled over Reggio and the streets were relatively quiet after weeks of street rioting.

    The 11-day general strike was called off as both sides explored the possibility of negotiation. Rioting started in Reggio after a smaller city was chosen to be the capital of the Calabria region. The National Government in Rome is expected to make a decision on the choice of capital later in the week. Meanwhile, police in Reggio fear further outbreaks of the violence in which three men have died so far.
