Mario Draghi

Italian authorities have arrested two people in connection with an alleged attempt to hack the email accounts of several prominent figures, including Mario Draghi.

Prosecutors working on the case told local reporters that there had been two alleged efforts to hack into the email accounts used by the European Central Bank president. One attempt took place on June 23, the day the UK held its "Brexit" referendum, while the other occurred in July, they told local media.
