New allegations surface in 1978 murder of Aldo Moro (ANSA) - Rome, March 24 - Rome's public prosecutor was asked Monday to look into new allegations in the kidnapping and execution of statesman Aldo Moro in 1978.

Allegations that intelligence agents may have been involved in the case, but not fully investigated, have come to light, ANSA has learned.

Red Brigade terrorists kidnapped Moro on March 16,1978 and killed him 55 days later, on May 9, 1978.

It has previously been alleged that the Italian secret services knew where Moro was being held and were tapping his captors' phones from the floor above, yet authorities failed to try to save Moro.
