Italy demands to know if French police dumped migrants

ROME (AP) - Italy has asked France for “clarifications” about reports that a French police truck crossed the border and dropped off two presumed migrants in the woods near Turin before returning to France.

The Italian Foreign Ministry said Monday it contacted the French ambassador in Rome for information “about the possible entry” of the truck at Claviere on Friday night.

Italian news agency ANSA reports that Italian police surveillance cameras captured the French vehicle on video. ANSA says the two people who got out of the truck were believed to be African migrants.

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who has taken a hard line on curbing migration, demanded an explanation.

He said: “I don’t want to believe that Macron’s France would use its own police to secretly dump immigrants in Italy.”
