Anti-Israeli demonstrations in Milan on Tuesday on the sidelines of a march celebrating the 61st anniversary of Italy's liberation from fascism prompted immediate condemnation from politicians and representatives of the country's Jewish community. The ANSA news agency reported that demonstrators near the Liberation Day commemorative march, which traditionally is attended by aging former partisans, trampled and burned two Israeli flags. The Apcom agency reported that Israeli flags were trampled and state RAI television news reported that demonstrators yelled "Intifada," in support of the Palestinian uprising. Center-left leader Romano Prodi, who won Italy's election last week, condemned the "vile demonstration of intolerance."
