Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni meets in Rome his Lebanese counterpart, Saad Hariri, 16/10/2017

Italy's Prime Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, met with the Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, at Rome's Palazzo Chigi. 

Hariri, 47, is the son of the country's former leader, Rafiq Hariri, who in 2005 was blown up by a suicide bomber.  Twenty-one other people died along with Hariri Sr.   That would explain why security at Palazzo Chigi was rather tight, including police dogs who sniffed their way around the building.
