Italy not forwarding CIA agent arrest warrents to US

Italy's Justice Minister Roberto Castelli has refused to pass on to the United States a request to extradite 22 purported CIA agents.
The agents are accused of helping to abduct Muslim cleric Osama Mustafa Hassan, without Italian permission, in Milan in 2003. The cleric, also known as Abu Omar, was flown to Egypt for interrogation. An Italian court had issued Europe-wide arrest warrants for the suspects, who are thought to have returned to the US. Mr Castelli signed the warrants but has now told Milan prosecutors that he had decided against forwarding their extradition request to Washington. He had previously accused one of the prosecutors involved of being a leftist militant and anti-American. here
