Italian prosecutors want U.S. Marine Mario Lozano to stand trial for the death of Nicola Calipari, a 51-year-old Italian intelligence agent who was killed at a U.S. roadblock in Iraq. Calipari was escorting an Italian journalist who had been released by kidnappers. A report published by Italy last year conflicts with the U.S. version of events and, according to the BBC, cited “the troops’ stress and inexperience.”

BBC:
Italian bid to indict US soldier

Italian prosecutors have called for a US soldier to stand trial for the killing of an Italian intelligence officer in Baghdad in 2005.

Nicola Calipari, 51, was shot dead at a US roadblock while escorting Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena, who had been released by kidnappers in Iraq.

Italy and the US government disputed the circumstances of his death.

Italian prosecutors want a US marine, identified as Mario Lozano, to go on trial for the March 2005 killing.

Last week Mr Lozano’s court-appointed lawyer, Fabrizio Cardinali, said he expected his client to be tried in absentia for murder and attempted murder.
