Homeless man attempts lighting self on fire at city hall

Ancona, September 17 - A 24-year-old unemployed homeless man of Polish origin on Tuesday attempted self-immolation inside the city hall of Ancona, a city on Italy's Adriatic coast. The young man poured flammable liquid over himself and was about to strike a flame in the youth-assistance office when city staff managed to wrench the lighter from his hand. The man was immobilized by police officers and taken via ambulance to hospital, where he is in good condition. The man's mother took her own life a few months ago, and he lost the social housing where he had lived with her.
