At least four young migrants have been expelled from Italy after writing comments on the web that were understood to be supporting jihadism. One of them, Faqir Ghani, was 14 when he arrived in Italy with his family in 2003, and his integration into the country was smooth. After liking some Facebook content about Islamic terrorism, he was detained and sent back to Pakistan in less than 24 hours, without even saying goodbye to his family.
