EU youth employment summit may be moved from Italy

Security concerns in Turin may mean change of venue to Brussels

(ANSA) - Rome, June 18 - A European Union summit on youth unemployment planned for the northern Italian city of Turin next month may instead be moved to Brussels for security reasons, sources told ANSA Wednesday. First ministers from across the EU were scheduled to meet in the industrial city of Turin on July 11 to discuss high rates of youth employment across Europe.

However, organizers are concerned about possible unrest in the industrial city of Turin, where groups have announced plans to disrupt the event. Turin has been the scene of violent clashes between police and demonstrators in the past, on issues ranging from social housing to opposition to a high-speed rail link between the city and Lyon in France, to rallies against austerity-driven tax hikes.
