Italian killed in Syria was being probed for terrorism

(see related) Genoa, June 18 - Giuliano Ibrahim Delnevo, an Italian who was killed in Syria fighting alongside rebel combatants, was under investigation in Genoa for terrorist recruitment, prosecutors said Tuesday. According to sources, the probe had been ongoing for months at the time of Delnovo's death. Delnevo converted to Islam in 2008 and soon became known online for his commentary on passages in the Koran. Authorities said he went to Syria towards the end of 2012, though he had already made contact with extremist groups there in mid-2012. Investigators are looking into whether Delnevo was trained in Italy. Prosecutors said "there are other suspects who are not from Genova".
