Man holes up in home

In Turin

(ANSA) - Turin, May 18 - A man holed up in his fifth-floor flat on the outskirts of Turin and threatened to start shooting Thursday.
    The man, reportedly of Calabrian origin, said he was being persecuted and shouted from the balcony barely intelligible phrases against the mafia, demanding to see journalists.
    The man piled up chairs, tables and other pieces of furniture against the flat's door.
    He broadcast the scene on Facebook, showing a handgun on his bed.
