In Italy, at least 14 people have died and another 36,000 have been displaced due to the floods that affected the north of the country.
In the emergency, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni announced that she is returning to her country from Hiroshima, Japan, where she was to participate in the G7 summit.
I can’t be away any longer. Conscience imposes it on me,” Meloni declared, according to the Italian press. The Italian leader thanked the emergency service personnel, the volunteers and the political leadership that is working to respond to the crisis.
