Terrible arson attack in the "CENTRO DI ACCOGLIENZA DI LAMPEDUSA"
Were the Tunisians who have started the fire.
They do not want to return to Tunisia.
But they haven't right to stay in Europe because they aren't victims of political persecution.
According to bilateral agreements, they must return to their country.
These things are killing this island..
