Salvini calls out 'monstrous' Afghan who harmed wife, baby


Roma, Nov 9 (IANS/AKI) Italy's 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#," wrote on on Thursday.

Salvini's post came after a court in the northern Italian city of 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.
