Italian judge indicts 25 far-right suspects

ROME (AP) — An Italian judge has indicted 25 suspected members of the extreme-right movement Stormfront on charges of racial hatred & making threats following posts on the group's website against migrants, Jews & officials.

The news agency ANSA reported Monday that the indictment stems from posts on the group's website in 2011 & 2012. A judge in Rome set the opening date of the trial for Dec. 15.

Among those targeted by the group were the anti-Mafia writer Roberto Saviano & Mayor Giusi Nicolini of the southern Sicilian island of Lampedusa, where thousands of migrants fleeing conflict, persecution & poverty in Africa have arrived in recent years seeking a new life in Europe.
