According to Mr Pelosi's new version of events - given in an interview
to state broadcaster TV Rai Tre on Saturday - on 2 November 1975, three
unnamed men beat Pasolini to death on a beach in the deprived Rome
suburb of Ostia, shouting abuse and insults such as "dirty communist".

Pasolini was a high-profile Marxist intellectual and many in Italy at
the time believed this was a political murder, rather than a case of
events spinning out of control in Rome's homosexual underworld - the
version endorsed by subsequent inquiries.
