Oranges and Hand prints used in demonstration in support of immigrants

Mock blood hand prints and oranges are seen in central Rome during a demonstration in support of immigrants, Tuesday Jan. 12, 2010. U.N. human rights officials said Tuesday that they were deeply worried about Italy's deep-rooted racism against migrants following clashes in a southern town between African farm workers, residents and police. Hundreds of Africans fled the farm town of Rosarno in the underdeveloped southern region of Calabria in trains, cars and caravans of buses arranged by authorities after two days of violence last week that erupted when two migrants were shot with a pellet gun in an attack they blamed on racism.
