Kidnapping of Ciro Cirillo
The outcome of the Cirillo kidnapping stood in sharp contrast to the kidnapping of the Italian former Prime Minister Aldo Moro. When Moro was abducted by the Red Brigades in 1978, the Christian Democrats in government immediately took action rather waiting for a solid negotiation.
Cirillo died on 30 July 2017 at the age of 96.
