Ostia, The Italian town torn by mafia violence

While Italy's new coalition government has focused on immigration in its first days in power, it is also facing major social issues. The seaside town of Ostia, just outside the capital Rome, has been hit hard by poverty and the rise of organised crime. The problems in the town have been acknowledged by the head of the Roman Catholic Church. During a visit on Sunday, the first in 50 years by a pontiff, Pope Francis condemned the organisations that have turned Ostia into a centre of mafia violence. Al Jazeera's Sonia Gallego reports for Al-Jazeera English Channel.
