MUSLIM MIGRANTS THROW CHRISTIANS TO SEA
Italian police have arrested, on 04/16/2015, 15 Muslim migrants in Palermo, Italy, for allegedly having thrown Christian refugees off the rubber boat that was taking them to Italy after a fight for “religious reasons”, according to media reports.
Those arrested – from Mali, Guinea and Ivory Coast – were part of a group of 100 that were rescued off the Libyan coast by the Italian coastguard.
After their arrival in Palermo, the other migrants informed police that 12 Christian refugees were hurled off the boat and killed after a religious row with the 15 Muslims that were later arrested. The incident occurs after as many as 400 migrants fleeing Libya are feared to have drowned when their boat capsized 24 hours after departing the North African ( Maghreb ) coast. Italy’s coast guard has rescued 144 people but several hundred others are feared dead given the size of the vessel.
Italian coastguard said they have “continuously” rescued up to 10,000 people since Friday 04/10/2015.
