He died when the UN convoy he attended came upon the fire.
Luca Attanasio was traveling as a member of the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) to stabilize the struggle of the country. However, the convoy came under attack and he had to become a victim of it. Moreover, a 30-year-old Carabinieri officer, Victorio Lacovacci was also traveling with him who met the same fate.
The Ministry’s press release suggests that Luca Attanasio died of “his wounds.” We forward our heartfelt condolences to his friends and family.
