Genoa, June 19 - The Italian Muslim convert killed
fighting the Syrian government was suspected of recruiting
terrorists in Italy, prosectors in Genoa said Wednesday.
Giuliano Ibrahim Delnevo, 24, allegedly recruited three
North Africans and one Italian Muslim convert using means such
as online sermons and a blog.
All five men were under investigation for terrorism.
Italy was shocked to learn of Delnevo's case on Tuesday
when reports surfaced he had been killed in Syria fighting along
extremist rebels.
A student from Genoa, Delnevo was born to Italian parents
with no reported links to Islam.
After converting to Islam in 2008, Delnevo took the name
Ibrahim, posting passages of the Koran on his Facebook page
along with a photograph of Abdullah Yusuf Azzam, known as the
'Father of Global Jihad' who inspired Osama bin Laden to take up
fundamentalist offensive jihad.
On Wednesday, Italian Defense Minister Mario Mauro said the
military was keeping track of Italians heading to fight in
Syria.
"We are aware that someone who leaves Italy to fight in
Syria is a phenomenon that needs to be monitored," he said.
Between 45 and 50 people including one woman are thought to
have left Italy to join the ranks of rebel groups in Syria, ANSA
was told by the Communities of the Arab World in Italy (COMAI).
