Italy: Muslim cleaning woman called 'security threat'

A Muslim cleaning woman employed in a provincial government office is a security threat and should be sacked, a local official of Italy's anti-immigrant Northern League was quoted as saying Friday.

Alessandro Savoi, the Northern League's leader on the Trento provincial council, made the demand in a letter to the council's chairman, Giovanni Kessler, the daily Repubblica reported.

"Get these Islamists out of our offices," the letter was quoted as saying.

"There is sensitive information on our desks and they can put their hands on anything."

He called on Kessler to change the company contracted to clean the offices to one that did not employ Muslims, but Kessler ruled out any discrimination in hiring staff, the report said.
