Italian police have arrested three men suspected of beating and setting on fire an Indian immigrant who was sleeping on a train station bench near Rome, investigators said.

The attack on the 35-year-old man Sunday in Nettuno sparked outrage in Italy and fueled a debate on attitudes toward immigrants.

The man has severe burns over 40% of his body, said Dr. Paolo Palombo of Sant'Eugenio hospital in Rome.
