Italy has been threatened with terrorist attacks on several occasions, the latest warning coming soon after the bombings in London. But Italians have already been feeling the brunt of terrorism abroad. One Italian woman was among those killed in the London bombings on 7 July and now four people, a young man and his wife and brother and a young woman from Puglia, have been confirmed killed in the terrorist attacks on Sharm el Sheik, while at least four others are still missing. The Red Sea resort is a favourite spot for Italian holiday-makers and it is estimated that about 30,000 were there at the time of the explosions. One of the hotels targeted, Ghazala Gardens, is the headquarters in for the leading Italian tour agency in the area, and it has been suggested that the bombers were deliberately targeting Italians.
