Arson has been the origin of a large part of wildfires that engulfed the entire territory during the last weeks. A report drafted by the State Police and submitted on Tuesday to the Prosecution Office put the emphasis on two main motives for this grave act. The intentional fires aim to clear the path to new pastures or restore the existing ones.
Some 35 people are identified so far as possible arsonists in different district, the police reported, while 12 of them have been detained.
Meantime over 3500 police forces have been deployed in the most problematic areas helping the firefighters to control the flames.
