Sister says extradited man is 'an innocent refugee'

A woman who is reportedly the sister of Medhanie Tesfarmariam Berh, who has been extradited to Italy for alleged people-smuggling, says her brother is "an innocent refugee".

Seghen Tesfarmariam Berhe says her brother was arrested instead of Mered Medhanie, who prosecutors believe is at the heart of an operation to smuggle migrants from Africa to Europe.
