Italian marines in India say they struggle to keep faith

Vatican City, October 25 - Two Italian marines held
in India since shooting two fishermen last February said
Thursday that they're struggling to keep the faith.
"We want to continue to believe in Jesus," marines
Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone said in a letter read
on Vatican Radio.
"We do not want to give up. We are unjustly held, but the
two of us pray together to the God who loves His children, and
loves those who are in pain".
Their letter was read by military chaplain Monsignor
Vincenzo Pelvi, who said it is "truly a demonstration of how
faith is nourished by love".
The two Italian anti-pirate marines have been at the centre
of a diplomatic row between Italy and India since being detained
in February in the shooting deaths of two Indian fishermen.
They were granted bail in June, but must remain in Indian
territory until their next hearing, set for November 8.
India's Supreme Court has still not given its ruling on
Italy's petition that it should have jurisdiction over the case
because the incident took place on an Italian ship.
The Italian government has stated that, regardless of who
has jurisdiction, the marines should be exempt from prosecution
in India as they were military personnel working on an
anti-piracy mission.
