Rome, October 24 - The Ferrari Formula One team will
carry the flag of the Italian Navy on their race cars at the
Indian Grand Prix on Sunday as a sign of solidarity with two
Italian marines being held in the country.
The marines are accused of killing two Indian fisherman in
February while on an anti-piracy mission aboard an Italian
merchant vessel.
The Italian government, citing United Nations conventions,
says its courts should have jurisdiction over the case and has
been pressing for the marines return to Italy.
The pair are being held while the Indian Supreme Court
considers Italy's claim for jurisdiction.
Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi praised the move by
the fabled Italian team.
"Credit to Ferrari for their decision to display the symbol
of the Italian Navy during the Indian GP," the minister said via
Twitter.
"It's a testimony to the support of our entire nation for
our marines'.
