The captain of a fishing vessel was arrested in Italy on Tuesday after allegedly throwing one of his crew overboard in a bid to stop police finding the undocumented worker, who could not swim.In a sting dubbed "operation chains," police slapped Andrea Caroti, 46, in cuffs and accused him of illegally hiring a Senegalese worker and ruthlessly pushing him into the sea off Tuscany in June last year.Migrants who work in appalling conditions are not a new phenomenon in Italy, though it is believed to be the first time a fisherman has been arrested for exploiting undocumented workers.
