Iran Condemns Murder of Italian Peace Activist in Gaza

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said Thursday that such actions by extremist forces "run counter to the cause and the interests of the Palestinian nation."

On April 14, Arrigoni was found hanged in an abandoned house north of Gaza City hours after being abducted by a radical group.

On the same day, a radical group calling itself Monotheism and Holy War posted a video on YouTube, showing Arrigoni blindfolded, threatening to execute the Italian activist by 1400 GMT on April 15, unless Hamas frees several members of the group, including their leader, Sheikh Abu Walid al-Maqdasi.

According to the Palestinian government's interior ministry, Arrigoni was killed even before the given deadline and soon after being abducted.

Hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza attended a protest rally, condemning Arrigoni's killing.
