Rome, March 27 - Italian caretaker premier Mario
Monti was sworn in as temporary foreign minister on Wednesday,
after ex-minister Giulio Terzi stepped down over a furore due to
the handling of two Italian marines charged with killing two
fishermen on an anti-piracy mission off the coast of India last
year.
Terzi stunned parliament Tuesday by saying he was quitting
because Monti sent the marines back to trial in India against
his wishes.
Terzi initially reneged on a pledge to return the two men
before a government U-turn sparked by an escalating diplomatic
tussle in which India blocked the Italian ambassador from
leaving the country.
Monti will not have the dual roles for long because Italy is
set for a new government or a return to the polls after last
month's inconclusive general election.
