The Islamic State's execution of 21 Egyptian Copts on a beach in Libya has put terror into Italy, who now fear that IS will form a new terrorist base only 500 km from the European coastline.
- There is an obvious risk that local militias and criminal gangs form an alliance with Daesh, said Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the Italian parliament. Daesh is a common Arabic term for IS.
Gentiloni calls Libya a ticking bomb that poses a clear danger to Italy, and which also threatens to destabilize neighboring countries in North Africa.
The Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi gave a request to the UN to create an international coalition to intervene in Libya. The country has been completely dissolved after the people's uprising against Muammar Gaddafi and NATO's contribution to his fall.
The UN Security Council will discuss the developments in Libya on Wednesday.
Meanwhile Italy, in fear of ISIS attacks in the country, has decided to put 5000 troops on the streets of Italy, with 500 patrolling the streets of Rome.
