Italy urges US help in case of marines held in India

Italian marines Massimiliano Latorre (R) and Salvatore Girone arrive at Ciampino airport near Rome, on December 22, 2012Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi asked Thursday for US help in resolving a long-delayed court case in India against two Italian marines accused of killing two Indian fishermen. “I thanked the US and the US government for the support that they’ve given us in this phase of the international discussion,” Renzi told a joint press conference after talks with US President Barack Obama. As tensions have boiled, Italy last month recalled its ambassador to India and summoned the Indian ambassador to express concern at the delays in the court proceedings. In late February, India dropped plans to prosecute them under tough anti-piracy laws, but prosecutors are now re-examining what charges to bring, which could include murder.
