Over a thousand African invaders launched a mass attack on passersby and buildings in the city of Turin, Italy, on Wednesday and Thursday this week, and were only beaten back by a police contingent using armored vehicles and full body armor.
News of the African attack was almost completely suppressed by the controlled media outside of Italy, and details have only just started to emerge as coverage in Italian newspapers appeared online.
According to the La Stampa newspaper’s Turin bureau, the Africans threw rocks and bottles at police, smashed road signs and parked cars, overturned trash cans and attacked passerby, terrorizing locals who were forced to take refuge in nearly shops which were forced to close.
The invaders are illegally squatting in the former Olympic Park village housing complex on the outskirts of the city, where at least 1,500 have been living since being picked up at sea and brought to Italy by the European Union’s naval fleet in the Mediterranean.
An Italian army truck also came under attack, and the police were forced to deploy in full body armor to bring the Africans under control.
The Africans—from Ghana, Nigeria, and the Cameroon—also attacked a fire-fighting truck sent to douse the blazes they had started, and then proceeded to barricade the streets of the city.
The Libero Quotidiano newspaper quoted some of the African rioters as saying that they were acting out of “revenge” for their conditions, and that “Allah would guide” them further.
That newspaper said that three explosive devices went off outside their illegally seized housing on Wednesday evening.
Libero Quotidiano claimed they were “letter bombs,” but as this seems unlikely, further clarification is awaited from the Turin police on the matter.
There is also no indication as of yet as to who set off the explosions, but Libero Quotidiano quoted some of the Africans as saying that the devices were the prime cause of the African outburst.
Libero Quotidiano quoted one of the Africans as follows:
”You Italians now tell your children that we are not dogs. Keep them quiet, because our patience will end, sooner or later. And then we’re going to take the gasoline cans and throw them at your windows.”
Another told Libero Quotidiano: “One of ours dead means the death of others. The Bataclan was the revenge of the excluded”—a reference to the invader terrorist attack in Paris in November last year, carried out by ISIS fighters who came to Europe as “refugees” and legal immigrants.
