ROME (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, central Italy was shaken by a series of earthquakes, with the biggest jolts ranging from 5.1 to 5.7 in magnitude and felt in Rome. On the same day, an avalanche in the region of Abruzzo buried the Rigopiano di Farindola hotel with dozens of guests and staff inside, killing at least four people.
Following the accident, Charlie Hebdo published a cartoon depicting the figure of Death hitting the slopes, holding in his hands two scythes instead of ski poles, with an caption saying "Italy. It's snowing."
Ilario Lacchetta said the instructions to prepare a lawsuit against the French weekly as well as against the authors of the cartoons had already been issued. The work will be carried out by the same lawyers who filed a lawsuit against Charlie Hebdo on behalf of the authorities of the Italian town of Amatrice, destroyed by an earthquake in August 2016.
