An envelope containing a bullet was sent to Turin Mayor Chiara Appendino’s office.

A report about the threatening package was first reported by Corriere della Sera.

Appendino also had an explosive package mailed to her last month.

Reacting to the incident, Appendino, a member of the 5-Star Movement (M5S), said that these attempts at intimidation have no effect and will only serve to drive her on to do her job as mayor with the utmost determination.
