They are not 'terrorists' they are 'guerillas'
A judge decides to follow her conscience and decide that:
A bitter row has broken out in Italy over a decision by a Milan judge to dismiss international terrorist charges against five Islamic fundamentalists.
The men, detained in Italy last year, were accused of recruiting guerrillas and suicide bombers to go to Iraq.
But a judge said they could not be prosecuted under new anti-terrorism laws as they were self-styled guerrilla fighters, not terrorists.
I am lost for words, but want to get a copy of the judgement in full. More in due course.
But in the interim, does this not make you want to howl?
