Italian authorities issued an arrest warrant for Palestinian terrorist leader Abu Nidal on charges of mass murder in the terrorist attack on Rome airport Dec. 27. Legal sources in Rome said anti-terrorist police have uncovered enough evidence linking Abu Nidal--code name for the renegade terrorist Sabri Banna--to justify the warrant. Abu Nidal's whereabouts are not known, but the United States has accused Libya of harboring him. The Rome attack and one in Vienna the same day took a total of 19 lives.
