Italy: Muslim leader expresses solidarity over soldiers' deaths
An Italian Muslim leader on Monday expressed solidarity with the country as it holds a day of mourning to commemorate the six soldiers killed in a suicide attack in Afghanistan last week. Abdellah Redouane, secretary general of the Islamic Cultural Centre of Italy and director of Rome's Grand Mosque released details of a letter sent to president Giorgio Napolitano.
"The Muslims of Italy feel close to their Italian brothers at this tragic time," said Abdellah Redouane.
