Italian judge orders the arrest of 26 CIA agents

An Italian judge has ordered 26 CIA agents and 5 Italians to stand trial for kidnapping. The case is based on the abduction of an Egyptian Muslim preacher Osama Mustafa Hassan in 2003, which seems to have been part of the US extraordinary rendition program.

Hassan was abducted and taken to Egypt, where he was imprisoned for 4 years. The cleric claims he was interrogated and severely tortured while in Egyptian custody. He was finally released about 4 weeks ago.
