ROME (Reuters) - Italy has arrested 141 people in a security swoop following the bombings in London and Egypt last month and remains at high risk from an attack by Islamic militants, the Interior Ministry said on Monday.

Italy, the subject of several Internet threats from purported Islamic militant groups, said it had begun expulsion procedures against 701 people.

"The latest evaluations ... confirm an ongoing high risk of a terrorist attack on our country," the ministry said in a statement after a parliamentary meeting on the findings from a series of nation-wide raids in recent days.

Italy has not been attacked by Islamic militants on its home soil, but after bombings in July in London and the Egyptian resort of Sharm-el-Sheik most Italians fear it is only a matter of time before they are hit."


Anyone else think this is a bit extreme?

6. That would depend.
I would think Italy would be dead in the center of the Al Qaeda bullseye next, so I can't say I begrudge them taking defensive measures. That said, whether this is intended to actually be effective, or is bullshit and bluster to cover Berluscolini's ass is hard to tell from out here in TV land.
