Italy: Trial of CIA agents accused of abduction of Abu Omar suspended

The trial of 25 CIA agents, accused of abducting Egyptian Imam, Abu Omar, in Milan in 2003, began on 8 June. The trial was suspended on 18 June, pending a decision from the Constitutional Court on whether prosecutors had the right to use secret service wiretaps and classified documents to build their case against the defendants. The trial is scheduled to resume on 24 October 2007.
