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.
