A fight at the Monastir reception center in southern Sardinia on the night of Saturday (November 27) involved about fifteen people, three of whom were injured.
Investigators reconstructed the episode in detail, filing police reports on four Algerian citizens.
The brawl was reportedly triggered by the theft of a pack of cigarettes by one of the guests and an Algerian groping one of his fellow citizens.
Two groups of foreigners first started insulting each other and then turned to physical violence, including the use of blunt objects, perhaps knives or bottle shards.
Police were able to stop the fight and ambulances were called to the scene. Seven people were slightly injured, four of whom were treated at the site for bruises and swelling. The other three, however, had wounds and cuts to the head and arms and were taken to hospital in Monserrato, where they are in non-serious condition.
After Covid quarantine, four Algerians will be expelled
