    Veneto President Luca Zaia on Wednesday said Italy should not allow U.S. soldiers returning from Ebola-stricken Liberia to be quarantined in Italy.
    Since Sunday, 11 soldiers back from active duty in the West African nation have been kept in isolation at the U.S. army base in Vicenza, a town in north-east Italy about 40 kilometres from Venice.
    “I am stunned, why should we be stuck with these soldiers who are at risk.
    “They should pack their bags and go home, there is no way we can become a leper hospital,’’ Zaia added, arguing that Italy has once again shown itself as spineless by allowing the U.S. soldiers into its territory.
    Zaia is a member of the Northern League, a right-wing, anti-immigration party that has in the past called for the secession of Italy’s wealthiest northern regions from the poorer south. :eek:
