Question Italy: Missile discovered in hangar leads to more weapons

Italy: Missile discovered in hangar leads to more weapons

ROME (AP) - Police say they have found more weapons in northern Italy following the discovery of an air-to-air missile and other arms days earlier.

Police said Saturday they had searched a second residence of one of the three suspects connected to the original cache.

A Turin-based anti-terrorism police squad said the latest search yielded a rifle, machete, a tripod for a machine gun, mortars and other weapons and ammunition.

A framed portrait of Benito Mussolini, the late Italian fascist dictator, also was found.

Authorities say the arsenal was in the possession of a neo-fascist party's unsuccessful candidate for the Senate in 2001.

Two other men were detained on July 15 after the missile was found at an airport hangar. Police say it apparently was offered, unsuccessfully, for sale.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
