While making a speech at a party rally, a spectator flung a banana at Integration minister Cecile Kyenge, who was born in Democratic Republic of Congo.

Before the incident, members of the right-wing Forza Nuova group left mannequins covered in fake blood at the site of the rally in Cervia, central Italy, in protest against Kyenge’s proposal to make anyone born on Italian soil a citizen.
