Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco of Genoa, president of Italy’s episcopal conference, received a second envelope on Saturday containing three bullets and a death threat. The first envelope arrived at the archbishop’s office April 27.
The archbishop has been leading a campaign against proposed Italian legislation that would give many legal rights to unmarried and same-sex couples.
Genoa police chief Salvatore Presenti said the incident did not require an increase in the archbishop's protection, reported ANSA. Archbishop Bagnasco was given bodyguards several weeks ago after graffiti threatening him was scrawled on buildings.
Genoa police cabinet chief Sebastiano Salvo told The Associated Press that no one has claimed responsibility for the threats yet.
