The Gambian man that was shot and left in a critical hospital in an Italian medical center has been identified. Alhagie Conteh from Barra was allegedly shot by a camp manager.
“He shot him. It was the camp manager. He has a gun and he shot him,” a witness in a video said. Conteh was shot in the jaw and witnesses applied pressure to help stop the bleeding.
Gambian migrants have been subjected to cruel and inhumane treatment in Libya and deplorable living conditions in asylum camps spread across Europe.
In Southern Italy, mafia bosses have declared war on migrants and shot a Gambian migrant, Yusupha Suso in the head as thousands of new refugees pour into their Sicilian paradise each day.
Immigration to Italy soared by 90 percent last year. There is a widespread concern in Italy that the number of new migrants exceeds the country’s capacity to cope – and the mafia is its biggest and most dangerous critic.
At least three Gambian migrants reportedly died of gunshot wounds this year in Libya as well. Authorities in the West African country have helped repatriate more than a thousand migrants, especially from Libya where they are held in detention camps.
