Florence: The city of Michelangelo and David. Not any more thanks to gangs of foreign men running the streets. Such was the case on Tuesday when four young men, believed to be North Africans jumped and beat another N. African in one of the city's central squares. It appeared to be a gang dispute.The below report from Il Giornale translated by Fousesquawk has a video taken by a witness. According to the article, it appears that this is not a rare occurrence in Florence.
