3 bullets, threat sent to head of Italian bishops

The head of Italy's influential bishops conference has received a second envelope containing bullets and a death threat, following comments he made opposing same-sex unions, news reports said Sunday. The envelope - with three bullets and the written threat - arrived Saturday at the Genoa archdiocese of Monsignor Angelo Bagnasco, the ANSA and Apcom news agencies reported. ANSA quoted Genoa police chief Salvatore Presenti as saying the incident did not require any increase in the archbishop's protection. Bagnasco was given bodyguards several weeks ago after graffiti threatening him was scrawled on buildings.
