Italy has committed human rights abuses that may amount to torture in some isolated cases as it tries to process the details of tens of thousands of migrants arriving by boat from Africa, Amnesty International said Thursday.The Interior Ministry had no immediate comment on the Amnesty report, which included allegations of beatings, electric shocks and sexual humiliation in a small handful of cases involving migrants who resisted having their fingerprints taken.Unnerved by migrants surging through Italy into northern Europe, the European Union called in September 2015 for Italy and fellow frontier state Greece to set up "hotspots" to identify and fingerprint the migrants.Amnesty said it had interviewed more than 170 refugees and migrants in Italy since July 2015 .
