Italy arrests over ‘iron bars attack on Gambians’
Police in Italy have arrested seven people suspected of involvement in an incident last month in which a group of young African migrants were beaten and racially abused.
Those arrested include two women. The migrants, six Gambians who are under 18, were attacked with iron bars and baseball bats by a group of people who used their cars to stop the vehicle in which they were travelling back to their reception centre.
It reportedly followed an earlier altercation near a beach to the west of Palermo in Sicily.
