Four migrants from Senegal, Gambia and Nigeria have been arrested by police investigating the rape and killing of a girl whose death has been seized upon by the populist right.
The body of Desirée Mariottini, 16, was found in a derelict building in an area of Rome known for drug trafficking. She had been drugged and gang raped. Right-wing Interior Minister Matteo Salvini hailed the arrests, condemning those behind the murder as “worms”. It would not go unpunished, he said.
Salvini, who leads the anti-immigration League party, has spearheaded measures aimed at scrapping protection for migrants not given refugee status, as well as stopping NGO ships carrying rescued migrants from landing in Italy.
