US send marines to Italy

  • The capture of Libyan al-Qaeda leader Abu Anas al-Libi is turning into a diplomatic incident; the government in Libya is expected to question the US ambassador over the operation. 

    The US has moved 200 marines from Spain to Italy and is hence, ready to respond if its mission in Libya comes under fire. 

    Abu Anas is presently being interrogated on a Navy ship without being read his rights since the US believes it can indefinitely question terror suspects on international waters; doing so also provides them with an opportunity to try those suspects in civilian courts. 

    According to the Obama administration, Abu Anas will be tried in New York but it isn't clear when.
