9/04/81: terrorist suspect arrested in Italy

On Thursday 9 April 1981 twenty-one year old Cristiano Fioravanti was arrested in Rome suspected of subversive activities and formation of an armed gang. The Italian had been hunted down by police suspected of terrorism as part of the extreme right-wing Nuclei Armati Rivoluzionari (NAR)  group, together with his brother Valerio and Francesca Mambro, among others.

The group had been connected with the murder of left-wing activist Walter Rossi in 1977 and the bomb which exploded in the waiting room of Bologna railway station on 8 August 1980.

Fioravanti was later released without charge.
