A full-blown ambush at the exit of the restaurant. The Victim of the attack, which took place yesterday evening around 11 pm, is the ambassador of Eritrea in Italy, Pietros Fessehazion. The diplomat was assaulted by two men with a sledgehammer at the end of a dinner in an Eritrean restaurant on Via Montebello, Castro Pretorio area. One of them was located and stopped a couple of hours away by the police. The suspect is a 34-year-old belonging to the Roman Eritrean community. Investigations are still underway to track the accomplice. On the case investigating are the agents of the Viminale police station, coordinated by Carla Canaia pm.

The ambassador was promptly cared for and treated at Policlinico Umberto I hospital for a wound to the hand, considered curable in 7 days. More serious collaborator, who was with him and another person, who was hospitalized with 30-day prognosis for a head injury and a fractured cheekbone: tried to protect the ambassador and had it the worst.

The accused disputed the arrest is attempted murder. Together with the accomplice, he would hurl himself against the ambassador screaming "I'll kill you", then flee through the streets adjacent to Termini station. According to preliminary reports, the motive of the attack is linked to political reasons. In the past, there was friction between the ambassador and one of his attackers. On one occasion over a year ago, during a meeting, the diplomat was openly questioned by that man who had attacked him by charging him with alleged shortcomings in the management of the Eritrean community
