Milan court convicts 3 Americans in CIA kidnapping

Milan: A Milan appeals court has convicted a former CIA station chief in Rome and two other Americans in the 2003 rendition kidnapping of an Egyptian cleric.

The court today sentenced former CIA station chief Jeff Castelli to seven years, and handed sentences of six years each to Ameircans Betnie Madero and Ralph Russomando.

All three had been acquitted in the first trial due to diplomatic immunity.
Italy`s highest court last year upheld the convictions of 23 more Americans in the abduction of an Egyptian terror suspect from a Milan street as part of the CIA`s extraordinary rendition programme.

The appeals process for Castelli and the other two was separated for technical reasons.
