ANKARA, Dec 16 (Reuters) – An Italian Roman Catholic priest was stabbed on Sunday at his church in the city of Izmir in western Turkey, police said, in an incident that recalled the fatal shooting of another Italian priest in Turkey in 2006.
The priest, identified as Adriano Franchini, was taken to hospital. His life was not in danger, a police spokesman told Reuters. He had been stabbed in the stomach.
Police have detained three people, the spokesman said, adding it was too soon to say what the motive of the attack was.
Gee, what a mystery!
