Italy police has taken a 20-year-old Somali man into the custody who threatened to bomb churches in the country.
Last Thursday, Italian police told reporters that a man named as Omar Moshin Ibrahim got detained in the southern city of Bari last Thursday accusing of supporting terrorists. Italian Police said, the Somali man Omar Moshin Ibrahim has been charged by the police.
He was supposed to stop his surveillance work operation in the cleaning company in Bali, according to police.
The police officials said, the investigation, included wiretaps in which Ibrahim was heard telling someone, “Let’s put bombs in all the churches of Italy. Where is the largest church? It is in Rome.”
According to them he was heard praising those who “killed on the path of Allah” in another conversation and hailing last week’s shooting at the Strasbourg Christmas market in which a gunman killed 5 people.
Police added that the man used the alias of Anas Khalil and called himself “Yusuf” on social media, and had arrived in Italy in 2016. He was suspected of having been a militant of Islamic State previously.
Italian police have increased security around churches, including St. Peter’s, which gets big crowds to the Vatican area.
