ROME (AFP) - A Milan appeal court on Wednesday toughened the sentences for 23 CIA agents convicted in absentia last year of abducting an Egyptian imam in Italy and ordered them to pay 1.5 million euros in damages. The 23 CIA agents, originally sentenced in November 2009 to five to eight years in prison, had their sentences lengthened to seven to nine years. They were also ordered to pay 1.5 million euros (2.0 million dollars) in damages to the imam and his wife for the 2003 abduction.
