Turin: anger as Muslim rugs taken from city hall
Two councillors from Italy's far-right Northern League provoked outrage on Tuesday after removing prayer mats that had been placed in Turin's city hall for a Muslim conference.
Roberto Carbonero and Fabrizio Ricca removed the rugs from a Muslim prayer room that had been created especially for a conference on Islamic fashion.
The pair insisted that the decision to remove the rugs was not down to prejudice or racism, but was because the city hall is a secular building.
