Those who rejoice at terror attack will be arrested -Salvini (3)

Postal police are sifting the Web says interior minister

(ANSAmed) - Jerusalem, December 12 - Interior Minister and Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini said Wednesday that anyone who rejoices online about Tuesday's terrorist attack in Strasbourg risks ending up behind bars. "Immediate arrest for anyone who has been rejoicing online over the last few hours," Salvini said during a visit to Israel.
    "Our postal police is at the cutting edge and it is sifting the Web to find the heinous people who are celebrating someone else's death". The level of attention of Italy's security's apparatus is at a maximum after Tuesday's terrorist attack in Strasbourg, League party leader Salvini said.
    "This morning the strategic analysis committee is holding an urgent meeting," Salvini said during a visit to Israel.
    "There is a situation of maximum attention from North to South for all radicalized subjects, terrorists and extremists who are returning.
    "It is necessary to identify, search, stop and arrest (extremists) with every possible means, verifying who enters and who leaves the country.
    "This is not a right but a duty for the defence of the national territory and its borders".
