Model town for migration in Italy takes new turn

A town in Italy which once welcomed migrants now doesn't with League Party's rise.

by

    A small town in Italy's south which once put out the welcome mat for migrants and refugees has now withdrawn it.

    Its former mayor who championed these policies as part of a plan to boost its shrinking population is now being investigated for aiding illegal migration.

    And its new mayor is from Italy's anti-immigration party, the League.

    Al Jazeera's Sonia Gallego has more from the town of Riace in southern Italy.
