Italy orders arrest of six more CIA agents

[JURIST] An Italian court issued arrest warrants on Monday for six more CIA operatives in connection with the kidnapping of a radical Muslim in 2003 [Washington Post report] in Milan. Last month the court issued warrants for 13 members of the unit [JURIST report] and is considering seeking extradition [JURIST report]. The six warrants today were issued for the remaining members of a group of 19 agents, originally believed to have been uninvolved in the abduction. Last week however, prosecutors told the judge they had "serious evidence of responsibility" implicating the remaining six. AFP has more.
