Modena, May 15 - Prosecutors in Modena in central Italy have opened an investigation into racial remarks on Facebook about Italy's first black cabinet minister. The investigation, by the Digos terrorist unit, is looking into whether the racial remarks about Integration Minister Cecile Kyenge constitute an incitement to racial hatred. Kyenge has been the target of numerous remarks about her race since her appointment just a few weeks ago. Kyenge, 48, was born in Congo and moved to Italy three decades ago to study medicine.
