Italy's high court throws out CIA rendition case

Italy's high court throws out CIA rendition case

Italy's Constitutional Court has thrown out the charges against 26 Americans accused of involvement in the alleged CIA kidnapping of an Egyptian terror suspect in Milan in 2003.
The ruling by the country's highest court sides with the government in saying prosecutors used classified information to build the case and threw out some key evidence on which the indictments were based.
State lawyer Massimo Giannuzzi says the ruling Wednesday means the prosecution will have to seek new indictments based on the remaining evidence or reopen the investigation.
