Bari, May 16 - Italy's Muslim community on Thursday said numerous individuals of Islamic faith have suffered physical violence in the southern Italian region of Puglia, as well as in other areas of the nation in recent weeks by "unidentified assailants". Sharif Lorenzini, who heads the Italian Muslim community, said in an interview with ANSA that he had taken testimonies, including one from a young man in the city of Bari who was hooded and beaten violently. Lorenzini said the incidents started after April 30, when the Carabinieri military police discovered a so-called undercover Muslim cell in Puglia, where Bari is located.
