(ANSA) - Rome, October 10 - There are still "too many
shadows and doubts" that remain around the 1982 attack on Rome's
largest synagogue, Italian President Giorgio Napolitano said
Wednesday.
He spoke at a ceremony to commemorate the 30th anniversary
of an attack by Palestinian commandos on worshippers leaving the
synagogue, which killed two-year-old Stefano Tache' and injured
37.
The commemoration service included Napolitano, the speakers
of the House and Senate, Gianfranco Fini and Renato Schifani,
and several cabinet ministers as well as the president of the
Jewish Community of Rome, Riccardo Pacifici.
The culprits in the attack were not punished.
Osama Abdel Al Zomar was arrested in Greece, convicted in
absentia by an Italian court, but ultimately extradited to Libya
where he is said to be living.
Two other men believed to have been involved in the grenade
and machine-gun attack have never been identified.
The Jewish community continues to call for justice.
Pacifici said he hoped for answers to questions about the
attack that still "haunt" his community.
