Barenaked is back and has the story here:
14 illegals were arrested in the Italian southern region of Sicily after destroying the detention centre in the city of Ragusa where they were held.
The men used the glass from the broken windows as weapons and climbed on the roof to throw fire extinguishers, chairs, shoes, light bulbs and anything else they could find against police to stop them. Two policemen were taken to hospital, one was hit in the face by a sharp object and the other by a glass bottle that fractured his cheek bone.
The violence comes after their recent failed escape attempt prior, when they were immediately stopped and returned to the centre.
Meanwhile, back in Tunisia Â the soldiers of allah are enforcing Islamic ‘dress codes’ against tourists:
Paris (dpa) – A French councillor of Tunisian origin on Wednesday said he was beaten by religious extremists in Tunisia because his wife and daughter‘s clothing were seen as provocative.
Jamel Gharbi, a councillor in the north-western city of Le Mans, said that he and his family were strolling around the northern coastal Tunisian town of Bizerte August 16 when they came across a group of men with the long beards and tunics of ultra-conservative Salafi Muslims.
“I saw they were looking at them (his wife and daughter) with hate because of their summer clothes, even though there was nothing provocative about them (the clothes),” he was quoted by the Lemainelibre.fr, a Le Mans news site, as saying.
“They told us we were in an Islamist country and I quickly understood things were going to degenerate,” he said.
“I cried out to my wife and daughter to run. They then pounced on me and struck me with their fists, feet and sticks,” he added.
Gharbi, 62, said he had reported the attack to police and cut short his visit to Tunisia.
Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe, who was born in Tunisia, condemned the “cowardly, despicable act by an extremist minority” as an “attack on Tunisia‘s values.”
The attack took place on the same evening as a group of Salafis attacked festivalgoers in Bizerte with knives and batons, injuring five people.
The demonstrators were protesting the presence of a Lebanese Shiite militant, who had expressed support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Salafis are Sunnis. They see Shia Muslims as heretical.
Two other towns also saw protests last week by Salafis against artists they accused of offending Islam in their work.
The opposition and civil society groups accuse the authorities of hanging back during Salafi demonstrations.
Tunisia is run by a tripartite coalition headed by the moderate Islamist party Ennahda. dpa str cfb jln
