>> Led away with an Italian flag draped over his shoulders. The man, police say, drove around Italy's city of Macerata on Saturday, shooting at African migrants. Police named the suspected attacked as 28 year old Luca Traini, and said he had driven his black Alfa Romeo around the city firing out of his window.
Six people were injured in the attack. The shootings happened days after a Nigerian migrant was arrested in connection with the death of an 18 year old Italian woman, whose dismembered body was found stuffed in to two suitcases near Macerata. Traini also reportedly fired at the officers of Italy's ruling Democratic Party or PD.
The PD said Traini has stood as a candidate for the anti Immigrant Northern League Party in local elections last year, but had not received any votes. Matteo Salvini, leader of the Northern League, has distanced himself from the shooting, but blamed mass immigration for the tensions. Italy's Prime Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, said the state would be severe with anyone thinking of fuelling a spiral of violence.
> And that, quote, hatred and and violence will not be able to divide us. More than 600,000 African migrants have reached Italy by boat over the past four years. Italy's center-right block, which includes the Northern League and Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia, has promised mass explosions of migrants if it takes power at elections next month.
