The Italian imbroglio | Free Malaysia Today
Italy seems to be having a tough time in India. The other day, two Italian tourists were taken hostage by dreaded Maoists in the jungles of Odisha (formerly Orissa, the eastern Indian State). The visitors, Paulo Bosusco and Claudio Colengelo, were in the thickly wooded forest taking photographs of tribals (probably semi-nude) when they were whisked away by the Maoists. This abduction comes soon after two Italian marines on board a navy ship shot dead two Indian fishermen off the Kerala coast. Despite Rome’s and even Vatican’s efforts to free the marines, now lodged in a Kerala jail, New Delhi has remained committed to the rule of law.
