India Top Court Allows Italian Marine to Extend Visit Home by 6 Months for Medical Treatment

India's top court extended an Italian marine's medical leave Monday for another six months, allowing him to stay in Italy and continue receiving medical treatment before he and a fellow marine are formally charged in the fatal shooting of two Indian fishermen in 2012. Italy recently moved for international arbitration in the case, after nearly three years of unsuccessful negotiations, and has asked that the Indian case be put on hold until the arbitration process is complete.
