A man who hijacked a school bus in Italy and set it alight was a known paedophile who had posted a video on YouTube saying ‘Africa – arise’, it has emerged.

Ousseynou Sy abducted 51 children, told them ‘no one would survive’ and set the bus on fire after they escaped in a 40-minute ordeal near Milan yesterday.

The 47-year-old driver, of Senegalese origin, told authorities he wanted to vindicate Europe-bound migrants who have died in the Mediterranean.
