Immigrants in the northern Italian city of Padua have decided to contribute to local security, by organizing a local nighttime neighborhood watch. Mohammed Ahmed, an Egyptian-born news anchor, launched the initiative. The group of immigrants who are integrated in the local community will begin their patrol on Friday night, in several districts of the city. I want to send a message to all well-integrated foreigners like me in Italian society that they should not be afraid to go out on the street,” Ahmed said. Immigrants from North Africa and eastern Europe are expected to take part in the patrol.
