ROME: A group of Peruvian and Ecuadorian youths stabbed an Egyptian to death in Milan, sparking an inter-ethnic riot overnight in the northern Italian city, news reports said Sunday.

Around 100 mainly north African youths went on a rampage following the killing of the 19-year-old Egyptian, bashing in the windows of South American shops, overturning several cars and setting one alight, Italian media reported.

There s a climate of racial hatred here now, and I m afraid about what might happen in the next few days, the owner of a bar in the area told the ANSA news agency.

The unrest took place in a northeastern section of Milan that is home to many immigrants, the majority from Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and other South American countries.

Milan s deputy mayor, Riccardo De Corato, called the area a Far West between north African and South American gangs.

Media reports said the unrest was sparked by a confrontation on a bus. -AFP
