Italian journalists receive death threats after reporting on local crime boss’ funeral

After reporting on the funeral of local crime boss Vittorio Casamonica in Rome, two Italian journalists have received death threats. Both journalists were approached by local residents who threatened them. The second attack involved a camera crew from a public TV station who were told they would be killed if they didn’t stop filming. The Guardian reported earlier this month that there’s been a surge in attacks in Italy on journalists by organized crime members who are looking to silence journalists.
