Bullet Sent to Archbishop Bagnasco

The BBC reports that Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco recently received a bullet in the mail:

The threats against the archbishop began last month when the doors of his cathedral in Genoa, northern Italy, were daubed with graffiti.

The Vatican opposes a draft bill on civil unions currently in parliament.

Monsignor Bagnasco received an envelope at the end of last week containing the bullet along with a picture stamped with a swastika, media reports say.

Police have now assigned an armed guard to the bishop.
