Update September 23rd: Italy deploys 500 troops to Naples to insure that calm is restored to this tense region.
It’s a beautiful Saturday afternoon and Blulitespecial is keeping me at the computer and busy by sending interesting articles I can’t resist telling you about.
Here is news of a demonstration in Italy where African immigrants marched to protest an alleged mafia hit of six of their fellow immigrants.
ROME — Hundreds of African immigrants took their anger over the alleged mafia killing of six Africans to the streets on Friday, hurling rocks and smashing windows in a town north of Naples.
Several hundred people participated in the demonstration, which continued into the evening, police said.
What is it about? Just like the rampage I reported in Greece yesterday, it’s apparently competition over the drug trade.
