'Renzi stop migrants or be terror accomplice' says Salvini

Northern League leader to La7 TV

(ANSA) - Rome, February 23 - The leader of the anti-immigrant, center-right Northern League party said Monday center-left Premier Matteo Renzi must stop illegal migrants fleeing war in North Africa and the Middle East or "be a terrorist accomplice".
    "The premier said yesterday that terrorists make money off the migrant boats," Salvini told La7 private broadcaster.
    "He must block these boats or become an accomplice of the terrorists".
    Salvini's comments came after some 2,000 migrants from Libya were rescued off the Mediterranean last week in the wake of Islamic State (ISIS) extremist forces' capture of the Libyan region of Sirte.
