ROME- Alfredo Cospito, an anarchist facing a life sentence on a terrorist charge in the Bincali prison in Sassari after a series of attempted violent crimes, continues his 100-day hunger strike. 

 Cospito started the hunger strike months ago to protest against the judge’s decision to place him in maximum security. This decision comes due to Cospito’s ability to radicalize and spread his violent message even from within the prison and instigate possible revolts.

ROME- After a blockage on metro line A in the eternal city, thousands of people rose to the surface and poured into the streets, causing mass outrage. The block lasted for 5 hours during peak times, and was replaced by a bus service, which was not only far slower but also has a far lower seating capacity. The bus driver was also not aware of where he had to stop causing passengers to shout the stops at him.     There are only two metro lines in Rome line A and line B, which is far fewer than other capital cities in Europe.
