Germany has extradited to Italy an Algerian man accused of recruiting suicide bombers for Iraq.
Mahjub: In custody in Hamburg since November
Abderrazak Mahjub, 30, is set to face trial for allegedly heading a Milan-based militant cell with al-Qaeda ties.
Italian prosecutors say the cell sent its recruits to camps in northern Iraq, to be trained for attacks against US-led forces in the country.
Mr Mahjub, also known as the "Sheikh", was detained last November in the German city of Hamburg.
A court cleared his extradition 10 days ago.
He had earlier been arrested by the German authorities for plotting attacks against Spanish holiday resorts, but was released because of a lack of evidence.
The Milan prosecutor's investigation also led to the arrests of two other suspects in Italy - both of North African origin.
Two other suspects are still at large.
