An Italian woman artist who was hitch-hiking to the Middle East dressed as a bride to promote world peace has been found murdered in Turkey.
She had said she wanted to show that she could put her trust in the kindness of local people.
Ms di Marineo was hitch-hiking from Milan to Israel and the Palestinian Territories with a fellow artist on their "Brides on Tour" project.
They had separated in Istanbul, planning to reunite in Beirut.
Klædt ud som en brud, blaffende sig vej gennem Mellemøsten for at promovere Verdensfreden®. Ak ja, kunst på højt plan. Den arme "kunstner" havde en overlevelseschance på niveau med en guldfisk i en blender.
I det mindste synes hendes søster at have en smule fornuft i behold:
"Her travels were for an artistic performance and to give a message of peace and of trust, but not everyone deserves trust," another sister, Maria, told the Italian news agency, Ansa.Så sandt, så sandt.
Update: Politiken har også fundet historien. Klokket 12.22. Nogen må åbenbart læse denne blog. :-)
