Left claims responsibility for latest Rome slaying

Gunmen using silencer-equipped pistols killed a right-wing political activist Wednesday in Italy's 18th reported political assassination of the year. Shortly after the killing of Angelo Mancia, an anonymous telephone caller told the newspaper La Republica it was carried out by the "Red Squad Organized Comrades," the same leftist gang that killed a Rome restaurant cook by mistake two days ago and bombed a right-wing newspaper last week.

In Turin Wednesday, a court sentenced two prime suspects in the assassination of former Premier Aldo Moro to a total of six years in jail on preliminary arms possession charges.
