Touil denies consent to extradition - update

'No restrictive measures if no evidence of guilt' says Pansa

(ANSA) - Milan, May 22 - Terror suspect Abdel Majid Touil told a judge at an extradition hearing Friday he does not consent to being extradited to Tunisia. The 22-year-old Moroccan was arrested earlier this week on an international warrant issued by Tunisia, where investigators say he participated in a deadly March 18 attack on Tunis' Bardo Museum. Also on Friday, national police chief Alessandro Pansa said the warrant was executed "correctly" and that "no restrictive measures will be taken if there is no evidence of guilt".
