A 26-year-old Nigerian woman was killed by a blow to the neck with a sharp object in the asylum-seeker reception centre at Mineo near Catania, Italy on Tuesday, January 2.
The local Police think she was murdered after a row with her partner, a fellow asylum seeker identified as Francis Miracle. The unnamed woman had been at the centre since December 2016.
Police later arrested the suspect, who is said to be a 30-year-old man from Mali, living in northern Italy. According to reports, he had returned to try to persuade the woman to come to live with him with her children.
