Video transcript:

00:00   “I am ready to fight and make war.” — It was perhaps this sentence that led to the action
00:06   in the dead of night in Milan that brought the arrest of the 22-year-old Egyptian
00:10   Shalabi Issam Elsayed Abuelamayem, the young man handcuffed by agents
00:15   of Nocs (Nucleo Operativo Centrale di Sicurezza — Security) special division of the police tasked
00:19   with the fight against terrorism, and who for some time had been under [phone] intercepts.
00:24   The Egyptian, considered [a part of] ISIS, was identified with two other subjects as a lone wolf,
00:30   and bragged of having received very intense military training.
00:34   In addition, he [is believed] to have a primary role
00:37   in the machinery of the black caliphate’s propaganda.
00:40   During the course of the investigation, in fact, the investigators
00:43   recovered dozens of audios put out by the young man.
00:46   They are [unintelligible] and sermons by extremist imams
00:50   in which martyrdom is exhorted and hate is exhibited toward the West.
00:54   The provision of preventive custody was issued by the Gip [primary investigation judge] of Aquila,
00:58   the city where the case began, that led to various searches
01:03   in Abruzzo, Lombardy, Emiglio Romagna and Piedmont.
01:06   The accusation against the 22-year-old Egyptian
01:09   is association with the aim of international terrorism,
01:12   instigation in defense of terrorism.
01:17   For the other [investigative] subjects, both Egyptians, 21 and 23 years old, on the other hand,
01:21   there is an order of expulsion by the Interior Ministry,
01:25   but one of the two at the moment has not been located.
