Salvini dons police uniform for migrant 'cleansing' call

Irks some police unions

(ANSA) - Milan, August 17 - Anti-immigrant Northern League leader Matteo Salvini has irked some of Italy's police unions by donning a uniform to call for "a controlled ethnic cleansing" of Italian cities from migrants.
    Salvini responded to the criticism Wednesday by saying that "only the leftwing unions are criticising me".
    He also said that "parts of Milan are completely in the hands of migrants".
    In nearby Como, some 500 migrants have been camping our in the railway station gardens for about a month. Amid plans to house them in containers, the European Commission said it was monitoring the situation.
