1,000 FASCISTS EXECUTED BY PARTISAN COURTER ORDER

From the May 7, 1945 Edition of Stars and Stripes

MILAN. May 6 (Reuter).—About 1,000 Italian Fascists have been executed in Milan during the last 11 days by order of partisan tribunals it was learned today.

These tribunals no longer are active, however, and all the other Fascists captured by Milan partisans are believed to have been handed over to the National Liberation Committee’s commission of justice for trial according to procedure laid down by the Italian government and endorsed by the Allies.

In Turin, where heavier fighting occurred, the number of executions ordered by irregular tribunals was said to be greater than in Milan.
