Rome, June 22 (IANS/AKI) Italian authorities on Friday expelled an alleged Moroccan Islamic extremist aboard a flight to Casablanca, the Interior Ministry said.

The suspect had received several earlier expulsion orders, the ministry added.

A total of 56 suspected Islamic extremists have been deported from Italy this year and 293 since January 2015, according to the ministry.
