Migrant boys kidnap top Italian official and threaten to cut centre manager’s throat

MIGRANT boys kidnapped Italy’s children’s commissioner and threatened to cut a refugee centre manager’s throat.

Filomena Albano and her team, including judges, were locked inside the migrant centre for 30 unaccompanied minors, mainly from Gambia, Nigeria and Egypt, in Cassano delle Murge, Puglia, Italy, for more than an hour yesterday.

A group of 12 boys threatened the delegation by saying they would cut the facility manager’s throat as they demanded “answers” during the planned visit in which the team were reviewing the condition of the centre.
