Italy's Religious Left

Nuns vote in today's primary elections for Leftist party leader. Results are in: It's Romano Prodi.

Update: Leftist politician Francesco Fortugno, Vice Chairman of the Reggio Calabria Regional Council, was assassinated today as he exited the polling station in Locri. Fortugno, 54 anni, was married and the father of two children. He was a licensed surgeon and a forensic scientist.
