Viva Diversity! Chinese Gangs accused of attacking “Arab Migrants” … In Italy

Italian police said on Friday they had raided nine premises as part of an investigation into a Chinese criminal gang they suspect of being behind a spate of attacks on North Africans.

The raids were carried out in the Tuscan town of Prato, home to one of the biggest Chinese communities in Europe and a booming textiles industry that is notorious for sweatshop exploitation.

The individuals being investigated are all linked to a Chinese cultural association “The City of the White Stag” and are also suspected of preying on law-abiding Chinese businesses.

Friday’s raids were carried out under warrants issued for criminal association and commissioning racially motivated violence.
