League rails against Muslim prayer

Calls for explanation from interior ministry

(ANSA) - Rome, October 21 - The Italian rightwing Northern League party said Friday that it would be filing a complaint with the interior ministry after a collective Muslim prayer at the Colosseum to protest the shuttering of unauthorized prayer halls throughout the capital.
    Barbara Saltamartini, deputy caucus leader of Northern League Lower House MPs, said that "there are over 100 unauthorized houses of worship in Rome, often pretending to be cultural associations, in locations that are entirely outside the control of the authorities. This is a disgrace that must not be ignored. This is why I will ask the interior ministry how such a thing could have been authorized."
