Guerrillas, not terrorists. And of course the judge has probably no idea what a “mujahid” is. From Reuters, with thanks to Teri:
MILAN, Italy (Reuters) — An Italian judge has dropped terrorism charges against five North Africans accused of sending suicide bombers to Iraq, saying they were guerrillas, not terrorists — a ruling that drew a fierce government reaction.
The five men were charged with sending militants to Iraq and planning attacks in Europe, but the judge said Monday there was no evidence of plans to bomb Europe and that sending fighters or funds to Iraq did not amount to terrorism.
In documents seen by Reuters, Judge Clementina Forleo said there was no evidence the four Tunisians and one Moroccan were involved in anything beyond what might be considered “guerrilla” activities and which could be defined as “terrorism.”
