Italy arrests 8 Moroccans for starting a riot to rob the locals

A number of Moroccans have been arrested in Italy for deliberately starting a riot in a crowded area full of soccer fans using pepper spray, in order to rob the locals during the panic, which injured several people.

(ANSA) – Turin, April 13 – Turin police on Friday staged an operation to arrest eight people suspected of causing the panic that led to a deadly stampede among people watching the Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid that killed one woman and injured 1,500 in a Turin square last June, sources said. The arrested people are suspected of trying to commit robberies by using pepper spray, thus causing the panic that swept through the northern city’s Piazza San Carlo square as fans watched the match on a big screen, the sources said.
