Italian driver hijacks and torches school bus full of children
A bus carrying 51 schoolchildren has allegedly been hijacked by its driver and set alight near Milan in Italy.

"No one will survive," the driver was quoted as saying by Italian police.

However the children, some of them tied up, were rescued through smashed windows at the back of the bus and no-one was badly hurt. Fourteen people suffered smoke inhalation.

The driver, a 47-year-old Italian citizen originally from Senegal, was arrested.

"It was a miracle, it could have been a massacre," Milan chief prosecutor Francesco Greco was quoted as saying.

A teacher who had been on board the bus said the suspect was known to be angry about Italy's migrant policy. Some reports said the man had shouted "stop the deaths in the Mediterranean".

This could have easily been 51 killed if the bus windows were too difficult to be broken open by kids

Imagine the outcry if an European emigrated to Sub Saharan Africa, gets a job as a school bus driver and tries to kill the children by setting the bus alight!
