YANGON • Myanmar police say they have arrested a mentally ill man who confessed to tossing a petrol bomb into the Yangon compound of de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi last week.

A man today opened fire on African migrants in a drive-by shooting in the central Italian city of Macerata.

Italy's interior ministry said that Traini is part of a culture of "right-wing extremism with clear reference to fascism and Nazism". One of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries.

Police are looking into a possible link between the murder and the shooting spree.

After the attack, Premier Paolo Gentiloni warned in Rome that "the state will be particularly severe against whoever thinks of feeding the spiral of violence".

A man has been arrested in Italy following a series of drive-by shootings that appeared to be racially motivated.

State television Rai said he was a 28-year-old from Macerata and that a pistol had been discovered in his Alfa Romeo vehicle.

Traini has both neo-Nazi and neo-Fascist ties and ran unsuccessfully with the anti-migrant Northern League party in a local election previous year. He did not win.
