AN Italian town has been left gripped by fear after an influx of migrants has seen terrified women too scared to leave their homes.
Frightened females have taken to the streets to protest against the opening of a new refugee reception centre, which will welcome the arrival of more than 250 asylum seekers.
In front of the group are banners emblazoned with the powerful message: “No security, no freedom” as shockwaves are sent across the entire community of Aurelio in Rome.
Ilaria, 20, said: “We didn’t want the opening of a new centre.
“It is not easy to get around this neighbourhood at night.
“You feel followed, you feel observed. It is not safe here anymore. “
Soon-to-be-mother Eleanor, 30, added: “I no longer dare to go home alone in the evening, I call my husband after dark.”
