Cassation says CIA spies 'violated Italy's sovereignty'

(see previous) Rome, November 29 - Italy's highest appeals court on Thursday said the 22 CIA agents convicted of abducting Muslim cleric Hassan Mustafa Omar Nasr in Milan in 2003 deserved no leniency because they "violated the sovereignty of the Italian State". Commenting on its September decision to uphold their convictions, the Cassation Court called their actions "extremely serious" given they were unauthorized and took place on Italian soil.
