(ANSA) – NAPLES, FEB 17 – A 13-year-old by was beaten up by
seven of his peers using knuckle-dusters in Naples on Monday,

contusions and facial wounds.
    He was kicked and punched repeatedly, official said.
    The gang has been reported to the police.

    On that occasion the two boys were threatened with a knife.

friend, was beaten to death. Duarte’s alleged killers, a pair of
brothers who are expert mixed martial arts fighters, have been
charged with his murder in Colleferro. (ANSA).
