  • Description

    For seven months the southern Italian city of Reggio Calabria has bene torn by intermittent riots. During all that time it's been a running story of violence and bloodshed on the segments of the population have demanded that Reggio should be named capital of the Calabria Region, rather than the smaller inland city of Catanzaro.

    Well, Italian Prime Minister Emilio Colombo, yesterday said that the police would intensify their efforts to crush the instigators of the troubles. He also said that the question of where the capital shall be will be decided by the Regional Administration of Calabria - although it has so far preferred Catanzaro.

    The city's rail links with the outside world have been restored after a 10-day strike by Right-Wing railway workers and, although there have been a few minor outbreaks of violence, things are looking more normal. A VISNEWS Rome-based freelance cameraman took a look at the latest situation.
