ROME – Italy’s foreign minister will ask the government to grant asylum to an Afghan man who had faced the death penalty for converting from Islam to Christianity….
Abdul Rahman, 41, was released from prison late Monday, a day after the court dismissed the case under pressure from the Bush administration.
He quickly dropped out of sight, as Muslim clerics in his country continued to call for his death.
