Terzi resigns 'out of disagreement with Italian govt'

(see related) Rome, March 26 - Giulio Terzi said Tuesday he is resigning as Italian foreign minister "out of disagreement with the (government's) decision to send the marines back to India". "My reservations had no impact and the decision was not mine," said Terzi before parliament in a statement of resignation. "My voice went unheard". His resignation comes amid heavy criticism of the government's handling of the case of two Italian marines facing homicide charges in India. The men were sent back to India on Friday. Rome had said they would not return after being allowed to come home to vote, angering India.
