A teenage migrant from Africa was savagely attacked by other vagrants during a dispute caught on camera in Italy last week, according to reports.
The disturbing incident unfolded at around 8 p.m. on Friday near Milan Central Station, one of the busiest in Europe.
Footage shows a shirtless young male walking through Piazza Duca d'Aosta in front of the station as blood appears to pour from his neck and face area.

The injured male can be seen flipping the bird to someone in the vicinity.
Suddenly, while his head is turned, an assailant delivers a flying kick to his face.
As the wounded victim is lying on the ground, the jump-kicker smashes him with a glass bottle and then kicks him viciously in the head again multiple times.
A screaming woman eventually scares the attacker away and bystanders rush to the aid of the young man, who appears to lay unconscious for a short time.
Authorities say the victim may have been involved in a scuffle with other African migrants in the moments prior to the start of the video.
He has been identified as a 17-year-old illegal migrant from Tunisia who may have an extensive criminal history in Italy.
"The victim had been photographed at the Trapani hotspot in late June. Then the 17-year-old had moved on to Bologna, where he had been stopped and photographed by the Polfer, and on July 7 he was involved in a fight inside a Bologna juvenile community," Corrière Della Serra reports.
"Then he arrived in Milan in mid-July. On the 18th he was reported by police precisely because he was recognized as the perpetrator of a mugging of a foreign tourist at Central Station. Two days later he had again been stopped by police for 'interrupting a public service' while crossing the tracks at the Cadorna subway."
The Tunisian was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and investigators are working to identify his assailants.
"Tourists arriving in the city not only find themselves surrounded by immigrants sleeping in tents and sleeping bags placed in the flower beds or under the arcades of the streets surrounding [Milan Central Station], but now even when walking in the heart of Milan, in Piazza Duomo, they witness the exchange of money and drugs," Francesca Galici wrote in Il Giornale last year.
"It is a disaster that no one seems willing to remedy and that paints an image of Milan in the throes of total decay, certainly not a postcard that invites tourists to visit the metropolis and its treasures."
