Renzi feels 'father's grief' over Mob toddler slaying (see previous).

(ANSA) - Rome, March 18 - Italian Premier Matteo Renzi voiced "a father's grief" over a four-year-old boy accidentally killed in a Puglian Mob hit Tuesday.

"An awful pain, as a father as well as premier," Renzi tweeted after the boy was shot dead in the back seat of a car on a motorway near Taranto.

Police said it was a vendetta hit on the driver, a member of the local mafia, the Sacra Corona Unita (United Holy Crown).

He was not the boy's father but his companion, also slain in the front of the car, was the mother.
