[JURIST] An Italian court has sent five members of left-wing extremist group the Red Brigades [Wikipedia article] to prison for life for involvement in the 2002 murder of Marco Biagi [EIRO report], an economic advisor to the government of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi [BBC profile]. In addition to their sentences the five were ordered to pay Biagi's family $2 million and $120,000 to the university where Biagi taught and other institutions. A police scan of one of the killers' laptops led to the arrests of all five. AFP has more.
