Illegal fireworks hidden in trolley luggage near Naples

Annual police crackdown continues ahead of New Year

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 31 - Italian police on Friday found 20 illegal fireworks hidden in trolley luggage near Naples as their annual pre-New Year's Eve crackdown continued.
    The case of fireworks was found at Soccavo on the outskirts of the southern Italian port city where New Year's celebrations are always the noisiest in Italy, despite some COVID firework bans.
    Some 220 kg of illegal fireworks were also seized at the nearby Piazzolla di Nola.
    The mayor of Naples, the city which always boasts the heaviest toll of injuries and sometimes deaths, has banned firework displays across the city this New Year. (ANSA).
