URGENT ¥¥¥ Italy says will send its marines back to India for trial

Italy on Friday said it would send two marines on trial for murder in India back to the country, after earlier saying they would remain in Italy in a move that had unleashed a diplomatic furore.

The two had been granted a special leave by an Indian court to return to Italy to vote in elections and will now go back to India before that leave expires on March 22, the government said in a statement.
