The Italian Municipality of Novara have announced that Sunday (December 6) will be a day of mourning for charity volunteer Doctor Rita Fossaceca, who was murdered in Mijomboni last Saturday (28 November).

Dr Fossaceca’s funeral will be held at the Cathedral and flags on municipal buildings and public offices will be flown at half mast.

The radiologist from the Maggiore Hospital in Novara was shot dead during a robbery in the house where she lived with her family and other volunteers from the For Life Onus charity.

The 51 year old’s body is expected to be repatriated to Italy on Saturday (December 5) after the two other Italian citizens injured during the robbery arrived back in the country yesterday (Thursday 3 December).
