The flag of Sardinia shown above features the severed heads of Moors. Unfortunately, the sentiment that inspired the original design has no place in Modern Multicultural Sardinia.
Rape while jogging: 16-year-old arrested
A 16-year-old of Tunisian nationality who resides in a reception center for asylum-seekers in Maddalena has been arrested by the Carabinieri of the local station with the assistance of the mobile radio unit of the territorial department of Olbia. He is accused of raping a 40-year-old woman who was jogging in an isolated area just outside the town. The young man, who was serving detention time in the center, located his victim, came up to her, and attacked from behind. The screams of the woman, who tried to escape the violence with all her might, aroused the attention of two persons who were doing physical exercises a short distance away and who immediately called 112. The trauma quickly put the victim in a severe state of shock. Hearing the shouts of the first responders, the young man escaped and hid himself in the undergrowth. He was hunted until the early hours of the morning when he was arrested and transferred to Sassari.
