ITALIAN PRIEST SLAIN IN SARDINIA

          NUORO, Sardinia (CWNews.com) - An Italian parish priest was shot and killed on Thursday as he was preparing for Mass.

          Father Graziano Muntoni, 57, was shot in the chest as he walked down an alley in the small town of Orgosolo on his way to his church for morning Mass, according to media reports. Before becoming a priest in 1990, Father Muntoni had served as a politician of the Christian Democrat party for years.

          Italian state RAI television quoted investigators as saying Father Muntoni may have been the victim of retribution for his campaign against crime, especially Sardinian kidnap gangs.
