With risk of terrorist attacks in Italy still considered high following the July bombings in London and Sharm el Sheik, Italys minister of the interior Giuseppe Pisanu has given an update of the government's record of the past month on public security. Anti-terrorism forces have carried out several raids on suspected Islamic terrorist cells, arresting 140 individuals, investigating a further 426, identifying 325 offences and beginning procedures leading to the expulsion of 701 foreign nationals. The main sites that have been targeted are call centres, internet points, Halal butchers and money-transfer agencies frequented by members of the Muslim community in Italy. Also, from September a series of drills for responses in the event of terrorist attacks are planned; they are designed to test the level of coordination of the security, defence and emergency services.
