Jihadi "bloggers" arrested in Italy

Milan newspaper Il Giornale reported on 25 February that seven individuals were arrested and under investigation for online activity in support of al-Qa`ida and global jihad. Article details include:

* This is the first instance of al-Qa`ida linked web activity being managed directly by Italians.

* Three suspects are in Florence, and their ages are 26, 49, and 55.

* Two of the suspects are described as a 21-year-old female university student from Reggio Calabria and a 19-year-old male student from Latina (near Rome).

* The suspects were in contact via the Internet with the former imam of Carmagnola, Abdul Fadl Mamour, who was previously deported from Italy and is currently based in Senegal.

* The Imam would translate official statements from al-Qa`ida into Italian, and would translate questions for al-Qa`ida leaders from his followers from Italian into Arabic.
