    Italian authorities arrested three people, two of whom are suspected of having recruited new members for the terrorist organization.

    Three people were arrested in Italy over alleged links to ISIL.

    Two of them originally came for Albania and are suspected of recruiting for the terrorist group. One man was captured in Turin, while the other was arrested in Albania.

    The third man, an Italian of Moroccan origin, was also arrested in Turin. He is suspected of preparing a 64-page ISIL propaganda pamphlet in the Italian language.

    In February 2015, the Italian government adopted a package of anti-terrorism measures, introducing, among others, prison terms of up to six years for fighters and recruiters.
