A bus driver in northern Italy abducted 51 children and their chaperones, ordering the children’s hands to be bound and threatening them with death during the 40-minute ordeal, before setting the vehicle on fire when he was stopped by a Carabinieri blockade.
Officers broke glass windows in the back of the bus and got all the passengers to safety without serious injury before the flames destroyed the vehicle, authorities said. As he was apprehended, the driver said he was protesting migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, Commander Luca De Marchis told Sky TG24.
Commander De Marchis said that the driver, an Italian citizen of Senegalese origin in his 40s, threatened the passengers, telling them that “no one would survive today” as he commandeered the bus carrying two middle-school classes to a nearby gym in Cremona province, some 40 kilometres from Milan.

illegal immigrant was the perpetrator.
Italian citizen since 2004.
Record of molestation and drunk driving. Perfect person to hire as school bus driver.
His record should have been the headline then. Not that he is an "immigrant".
As he was apprehended, the driver said he was protesting migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, Commander Luca De Marchis told Sky TG24.
Now it is possible he has had a mental breakdown or some such thing, that he is suffering PTSD from whatever forced him to leave his homeland or whatever he was exposed too during that journey - in which a great many people die each year. But he tried to kill a bus load of kid's. Would you want him in your country?
The suspect was known to police, having been previously convicted of assault and for driving while intoxicated, Alberto Nobili, head of counter-terrorism at the Milan public prosecutor's office, told a news conference
