    The episode happened around 2:00, when the police decided to stop a passing car in Via Gramsci. The African driver initially showed himself to be collaborative, pretending that he wanted to show his documents, but once he got out of the car, he started running. The fleeing driver was pursued by the agents and finally arrested not far from the scene.

    The arrested Senegalese suspect then began shouting, calling the attention of some of his countrymen, who immediately rushed to defend him.

    The two men in uniform quickly found themselves trapped by a mob of angry Africans. Surrounded by a group of non-EU citizens, they were pelted with glass bottles.

    The dangerous situation was resolved thanks to the providential intervention of reinforcements sent by the police. The arrival of other patrols resulted in the mob fleeing and allowed the arrest of the fugitive, a 31 year old.

    The latter, who had lost money during the escape, was found to have a total of 2 590 euros in small bills. In addition to the money, he was carrying 3 grams of cocaine.

    This find convinced the agents that they should carry out a more thorough check. The Senegalese was then transported to the Galliera hospital to undergo an examination.

    At least 20 wrapped doses of a drug was discovered in his intestines. He is currently being hospitalized in the Voltri hospital, and will be transferred to the Marassi prison only after he has expelled the drugs.

    The Africans will face no serious consequences for attacking policemen, both of whom had to be admitted to the emergency room for their injuries.

    In Milan, at a migrant reception centre, an emergency rescue team was pelted with rocks. After a fire had broken out in the building in Via Aquila, many migrants aged 19 to 60 according to Milan Today had to be transported to hospital.

    One migrant at the center was locked in a room and had breathed toxic fumes for several minutes before being rescued. The Councilor for Security of the Lombardy Region, former deputy mayor of Milan Riccardo De Corato said: “The fire this afternoon, in the Reception Center managed by the Municipality of Milan in the Ortica area is yet another demonstration of what has been noted several times.

    “In these places, there is always something wrong. Who is monitoring them? Who sleeps there? Who are the delinquents? What else must happen so that the municipality takes these situations seriously?”

    Finally, as reported by Italian daily Corriere Milano, the fire brigade vehicle was pelted with rocks during the on-site rescue operations.
