Italian MP offers to swap places with sick marine in India

'I can stay as long as necessary' Vaccaro says

(ANSA) - Rome, September 2 - An Italian MP has offered to swap places with one of two Italian marines being detained in India who has fallen ill so he can return to Italy for medical care, sources said Tuesday.
    Guglielmo Vaccaro from the ruling Democratic Party (PD) wrote to the daughter of hospitalized marine Massimiliano Latorre, who along with Salvatore Girone is being detained in India in connection with the shooting deaths of two Indian fishermen in 2012.
    Latorre was hospitalized Sunday in New Delhi after he lost consciousness due to a mild transitory ischemia, or restriction of blood supply.
    The next court hearing in the marines' case is scheduled for mid-October.
