A 54-year-old man who set himself on fire outside of the Italian parliament last week died on Sunday, according to police.

He died on Sunday after setting himself on fire outside the Italian parliament last week to highlight his struggle with unemployment, police said.

Angelo di Carlo lit himself on fire in frustration of his struggle with unemployment, last week, and subsequently died from his injuries.

85 percent of his body was covered in burns after the incident in front of the Chamber of Deputies on August 11th.

Di Carlo’s death is just the latest in a string of high-profile suicides of people frustrated by the economic climate in Europe, as many people cannot find work or support themselves.
