Thousands of people have taken part in an anti-migrant rally in the Italian capital, Rome, staged by the far-right Casa Pound group.


"Stop the invasion! This is my home," the crowd chanted as it started its march from a reception place for migrants and refugees at Piazza Vittorio square on Saturday.

 


The protesters carried Italy’s national flags as well as the colors of the Casa Pound movement, which stands against the European Union's refugee policies and demands tougher border controls.
