Racism, perhaps terror at Macerata (2)

'Devastating' anti-migrant tones from Salvini

(ANSA) - Rome, February 8 - There was racism and perhaps terrorism too in last month's shooting of six African migrants in Macerata in revenge fo the murder and dismemberment of an 18-year-old Italian woman allegedly by a Nigerian drug pusher, Democratic Party leader Matteo Renzi said Thursday.
    "There was devastating racism, and perhaps terrorism too," the PD leader, adding that assailant Luca Traini, a rightist activist, "could also have killed someone in the PD office" when he shot at it in his drive-by spree.
    Renzi added that "the Italians will recognise our good sense" in playing down migrant fears and highlighting the risk of a neoFascist resurgence after Macerata.
    He said that anti-migrant League leader Matteo Salvini was not the "moral commissioner" of the shooting but had used "devastating tones" in his rising anti-migrant invective over the years.
