Italy expels Moroccan man suspected of terrorist intentions

ROME - Italy has expelled a Moroccan man after investigations revealed he wanted to commit acts of terrorism and planned to travel to Syria, the interior minister said on Tuesday.
The 40-year-old, who had briefly acted as a Muslim cleric while living near the northern town of Padua, left Italy on a plane bound for Casablanca, Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said in a statement.
"I decided to expel him because ... he showed a will to commit terrorist acts and the intention to go to conflict zones in Syria," Alfano said.
