Italy on Friday deported four foreign nationals and arrested one man for reasons of national security, an interior ministry statement said.

Among the deportees was a 46-year-old Moroccan woman who lived near the city of Como in the northern Lombardy region, of which the capital is Milan.

She is married to an Egyptian extremist who fought in the 7th Mujahideen (Islamist fighter, in Arabic) Battalion in Bosnia during the 1990s war in the former Yugoslavia, the statement said.

The Milan division of Italy's DIGOS anti-terrorism police arrested the husband on Friday on charges of belonging to an extremist organization, the ministry said.
