Oriana Fallaci to Face Defamation Trial
Marta Falconi of the Associated Press:
The case arose after Muslim activist Adel Smith charged that "some of the things she said are offensive to Islam," said Smith's attorney, Matteo Nicoli. He cited a phrase from the book that refers to Islam as "a pool … that never purifies."
Fallaci, who is in her 70s, said she is accused of violating an Italian law that prohibits "outrage to religion."
