An Italian man accused of attempted murder and of letting off a bomb outside an entrepreneur’s residence was arrested after stepping off his plane in Naples after a flight from Malta.

The 69-year-old man attempted to extort and threatened the Italian businessman, reports in the Italian media have said, whilst his two nephews were also arrested on similar charges.

The businessman was being extorted into repaying €700,000 which the family claim to have lent him.
