    "An Italian general has been sentenced to two years in prison for failing to provide proper security at an Iraqi base hit by a suicide attack.

    Gen Bruno Stano was in charge of Nasiriya base, southern Iraq, when the attack killed 19 Italians.

    He was given a suspended sentence by a military court judge.

    He was charged last year with two other officers. Gen Vincenzo Lops was acquitted while Col Georg Di Pauli still faces military justice.

    All three were charged with "omissions of military defence measures".
