(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 29 - Dalila Procopio, a 25-year-old Italian woman arrested in Istanbul during a feminist march on Friday, is set to be expelled from Turkey, the Mor Dayanisma women's group said on Tuesday.
    The association added that Procopio has been taken to a repatriation centre and issued with an order not to return to Turkey.
