Probes opened into banana throwing incident against Kyenge


Ravenna, August 1 - An investigation has been
opened for a banana-throwing incident last week aimed at
Integration Minister Cecile Kyenge while she was speaking at a
rally in the city of Cervia.
Investigators and police are examining videos and
questioning audience members to ascertain who the fruit thrower
could have been.
During the Congo-born minister's speech at a Democratic
Party meeting, someone in the audience threw a banana, a likely
reference to comments by a Senator from the anti-immigration
Northern League, who compared her to an orangutan.
That was followed by slurs against Kyenge, some in support
of the banana-thrower, posted on the Facebook pages of local
politicians in Tuscany and the Veneto region.
Italy's first black cabinet member has suffered a barrage
of racist epithets since her appointment in April.
