Gaza bids farewell to slain Arrigoni

Hamas blames Salafi group for Italian activist’s murder as names and pictures of three suspects are released.

    Hundreds of Vittorio Arrigoni’s friends and supporters escorted his coffin in a final farewell to the 36 year-old peace activist at a ceremony in Rafah.

    He is the first foreigner to have been kidnapped and killed in the Gaza Strip.

    Hamas, which rules the Palestinian territory, blamed a Salafi group for his murder. It has released the names and pictures of three suspects its searching for.

    But as Nicole Johnston reports from Rafah, there are still plenty of unanswered questions – including why Arrogoni was killed hours before the kidnappers' 30-hour deadline had passed?

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
