Italy will send back marines


Reversing its earlier decision, the Italian government said late on Thursday that it would return to India the two marines facing murder charges in the shooting of two fishermen.

The Italian foreign ministry had earlier said the marines, Salvatore Girone and Massimiliano Latorre, would not return to face trial in India. The Supreme Court had granted them bail till March 22.

An upset Supreme Court had later said Italian envoy Daniele Mancini could not leave India.
