The case of Nazi war criminal Erich Priebke has taken on another bizarre twist with his family saying it doesn't know where his body is.
At a certain point, he told Sky TG24, a group of about 30 people entered the compound and took the casket out following protests pitting Priebke's right-wing supporters against his detractors.
Giachini said he assumed the Italian military was responsible; Italian state radio said the casket was taken to a nearby military base.
But Giachini said he doesn't know who has the body or where it is.
