Italy claims credit for softening in marine case
Hard work by Italian government turned New Delhi, says committee24 February, 19:39
Earlier in the day, Indian prosecutors said they would not try Salvatore Girone and Massimiliano Latorre under a harsh anti-piracy, anti-terrorism law but the case would remain in the hands of anti-terrorism police.
The supreme court adjourned proceedings for two weeks, the latest in a string of delays which have irked Italy.
The EU and NATO have said the case could have implications on the global fight against piracy.
Italy says the marines should be tried in Italy because the February 2012 incident took place in international waters. The task force also said that Italy will "continue with determination" on its present course of action.
