Murderer escapes – again

- Rome

– An Italian murderer who was serving life in prison has escaped for the third time at least, a police union said on Monday.

Giuseppe Mastini, 60, nicknamed “Johnny the Gypsy”, took advantage of a temporary release from a high-security jail in Sardinia to flee, failing to return to his cell on Saturday, the ES Polizia union said.

Police are on the hunt for the prisoner. Mastini committed his first murder aged 11, according to Italian news agency ANSA. – AFP
