“Despite the increase of extreme right-wing sentiments across Europe, only one right-wing terrorist attack in the EU was reported in 2018. In Italy, a man carried out a shooting spree on 3 February in Macerata. During the attack, which lasted for two hours, he wounded six people whom he thought were Africans. The suspect was charged with multiple counts of attempted murder. The incident occurred after the murder of an Italian teenager, in connection with which three Nigerian suspects were arrested. In 2017, the perpetrator had run unsuccessfully for local elections for the anti-migrant Lega Norte (Northern League).” (s. 60)
