A 24-year-old Italian man has been arrested for allegedly stabbing to death a 26-year-old Russian in Rome on Thursday night, in what is thought to have been a feud related to drug dealing.

The Italian, a previous offender originally from Frascati, was arrested on Friday after being caught on CCTV footage stabbing the Russian man in the chest on a street in the capital’s Prenestino district, La Repubblica reported.

The pair is said to have crossed paths as they returned from a music event to mark the May Day holiday.

The Italian man is reported to have held a grudge against the Russian over their arrest for a drug-related offence in Naples in 2009.

The Russian reportedly accused the Italian of involvement in the offence, which led to his arrest.
