Gaza court cuts sentence in Italian murder case

A Gaza military court on Tuesday accepted the appeal by two militants convicted last year of the kidnap and murder of an Italian national, reducing their sentences from life to 15 years. "The High Military Court has accepted the appeal presented by (Mahmud) al-Salfiti and (Tamer) al-Husasna to reduce their sentence from hard labour and life, to 15 years," said the judge in a brief hearing. The two men, both former police officers, were convicted in September 2012 for the kidnap and murder of Italian activist Vittorio Arrigoni and sentenced to life imprisonment.
