Bagnasco slams Brenner barrier

'Walls, border shutdowns not the way' says Genoa cardinal

(ANSA) - Genoa, April 29 - Walls and closed borders are not the way to deal with humanitarian problems, the leader of the Italian Bishops Conference (CEI) said Friday.
    The comments by Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, the archbishop of the northwestern city of Genoa, came after Austria said it may erect a barrier at the Brenner Pass on the border it shares with Italy to keep asylum seekers out. "This situation of universal migration must be taken more seriously on the international level - that is by the UN and not just by Europe or Italy, which is doing its best," said
