Mayor probed in construction of shrine to war criminal

Rome, April 24 - The mayor of a town south of Rome is under investigation for using public funds to build a shrine to an army chief convicted of war crimes during Italy's colonial wars in Ethiopia and Libya. Prosecutors in Tivoli are probing Ercole Viri, mayor of the town of Affile, who is accused of building a shrine to fascist field marshal Rodolfo Graziani. Originally the monument was to be dedicated to the unknown soldier. Investigators are also probing how the funding was dispersed by the Lazio regional government.
