Traini, who has a fascist-inspired tattoo is a member of the Northern League and ran in local elections previous year.

MILAN-The extreme right-wing suspect in a shooting rampage that wounded six African migrants in Italy has demonstrated no remorse for his actions and was "lucid and determined, aware of what he had done", an Italian law enforcement official said Sunday.

A 29-year-old Nigerian migrant was arrested in connection with the terrible death.

The shootings appear to have been be racially motivated.

One of Traini's victims, a 29-year-old woman identified only as Jennifer, told the daily La Stampa from her hospital bed that she no longer feels free to walk around the city "with peace of mind" after the attack.

Italy has been struggling with a huge immigration inflow for the last several years, with the majority of migrants coming across the Mediterranean in smugglers' boats. One of them remained in intensive care.

Mayor Romano Carancini had warned residents to stay inside while police were hunting for the shooter.

Pamela Mastropietro was found dead on Wednesday, dismembered and packaged in two suitcases, reports have said. Authorities ordered public transport halted and that students be kept inside schools, which are open on Saturdays.

Macerata, Italy is the scene of a mass shooting targeting black people. This is ... a grave fact.

Egypt's military spokesperson Tamer El-Refaai told Egypt Independent on Sunday that the report is "not credible". The Sinai Peninsula has become a safe haven for terrorists and jihadist activity in recent years.

Video of the suspect's bedroom provided by the Italian Carabinieri on Sunday showed Hitler's infamous autobiography, other publications linked to Nazism and a flag with a Celtic cross - a symbol commonly used by white supremacists.

The spent cartridge case of a firearm is seen on a street after a shooting broke out in Macerata, Italy, Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018.

Matteo Salvini, head of the anti-migrant Northern League, has capitalised on Ms Mastropietro's murder in his campaign, and has vowed to deport 150,000 migrants in his first year of office if elected. That has drawn sharp rebukes that Salvini is using the migrant crisis to foment xenophobia for political gain.

"Whoever, like Salvini, exploits news events and tragedies for electoral purposes is among those responsible for the spiral of hatred and violence that we must stop as soon as possible", Grasso said.

Leftist politicians are blaming the far-right League party for stirring up racist ferver.

The leader of Italy's Democratic Party PD, Matteo Renzi, called for calm in a Facebook post.

Salvini told reporters Saturday at a campaign stop in Bologna that he would bring security to Italy.

"Someone who shoots is a delinquent, irrespective of the colour of his skin", he declared.
