Italy issues arrest warrants for kidnappers and victim in ‘extraordinary rendition’

The BBC reports that an Italian judge has issued warrants for the arrest of 13 people in the 2003 abduction of an Islamic cleric in Milan.

Osama Mustafa Hassan, also known as Abu Omar, was already being investigated in Italy as part of a terrorism inquiry.
Italian prosecutors believe the operation was part of a controversial US anti-terror policy known as “extraordinary rendition”.

So another Milan-based judge has issued an arrest warrant for the imam.
