Huge car bomb found near Rome parliament
Thursday 03 June 1993
Police removed a large quantity of explosives from a Fiat 500 car after an anonymous tip-off. The bomb 'could have had catastrophic effects if it had gone off', said an official.
While police were evacuating the streets around the suspect car, Italian leaders were congratulating officials on another coup against the Mafia with the arrest of Giuseppe Pulvirenti. He was captured in an early morning raid on an underground bunker in a house near Catania, Sicily, after 11 years on the run. Police say he was the top Mafia boss in east Sicily.
