In the south of Campania (a region of Southern Italy), and more precisely in the plateau named Vallo di Diano, a misunderstanding seems having upset the plans of “three yong men” searching for a moment of more lively delight, let’s say.
Last night, around 04:00, some persons residing in the “historical centre of a town of the northern area of the Vallo di Diano saw” the mentioned youngsters roaming “the narrow roads of the quarter”. They found this nocturnal walk suspicious, thought the young men “were” a group of “thieves” and decided to alert the “Carabineers (Carabinieri)”, who arrived some minutes later from the municipalities of Sala Consilina and Polla (Il Mattino.it).

TRIPOLI (LIBYA) – An official of the National Oil Corporation confirms the decision – announced yesterday by the Italian integrated energy company Eni – to suspend gas production and export from northwest of Libya (managed by Mellitah Oil & Gas, joint venture between NOC and Eni) to the plant of Gela (Sicily, Italy).
