Migrants in Italy 'targeted' in drive-by shooting

Migrants in Italy 'targeted' in drive-by shooting

A person has been arrested after four people were injured in a shooting in Italy.

Shots had been fired in the Via Spalato and Via dei Velini parts of town, two key areas in an investigation into the murder of an 18-year-old girl whose body was found dismembered and hidden in two suitcases last Wednesday.

After the attack in the town of Macerata, the suspect got out of his auto and made a fascist salute while wearing a tricolour scarf, according to Italian media.

WASHINGTON • Federal Reserve chairman Janet Yellen will join the Washington think-tank Brookings Institution tomorrow, after stepping down from the U.S. central bank.

Mayor Romano Carancini told Sky TG24 that the victims were five men and one woman. Traini had run on a list for the anti-migrant Northern League party in a local election a year ago in the town of Corridonia, but the party lost.

However, no official link has been made between the two incidents.

The attack's connection to the Northern League was likely to unsettle Italy as it approaches national elections March 4. The chief suspect is a Nigerian immigrant.

A video posted by the newspaper il Resto di Carlino showed a man with an Italian flag draped over his shoulders being arrested by armed Carabinieri officers a short distance from where he apparently fled his vehicle on foot. The news agency ANSA quoted friends of his as saying that Traini had previously been affiliated with Italian extremist parties like the neo-fascist Forza Nuova and CasaPound.

Matteo Salvini, head of the far-right League, wrote on Facebook, accusing the centre-left government of responsibility for Mastropietro's death for allowing migrants to stay in the country.

As the violent attack unfolded in Macerata in Italy's central Marche region, police told residents to stay inside and ordered a halt to public transport to limit the casualties. The news agency ANSA said two of the injured were black, and that witnesses reported that the auto was seen in the area where the woman's body was found.

Police have not said how many people were wounded in Saturday's shootings.

He is pledging to deport 150,000 migrants in his first year in office if his party wins control of parliament and he is named premier.

"We must be united against hatred", Carancini said.
