Salvini calls out 'monstrous' Afghan who harmed wife, baby
Italy's Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has deplored an Afghan man who was jailed for attacking his baby daughter and wife, saying people who behaved in such a "monstrous" way had no place in Italian society.
"Monstrous. No integration for whoever in this day and age mistreats and humiliates women and children. #Zero tolerance#," Salvini wrote on Facebook on Thursday.
Salvini's post came after a court in the northern Italian city of Milan jailed the 30-year-old Afghan for three years and eight months for beating his one-year-old daughter and for kicking, punching, hitting with a belt and raping his wife.
The man, who had wanted a son, "repeatedly" subjected his baby daughter and wife to "physical and psychological violence", the court said. He had married his wife in Pakistan when she was 15 years old. - IANS
