ROME: Indian authorities are pandering to emotions over the arrest of two Italian Marines for the killing of two Indian fishermen, Italy's Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi has said.

Indian authorities are also pandering to emotions and local politics, Italian news agency AKI quoted the minister as saying Monday.

A security detail of Italian Marines Feb 15 fired at a fishing boat off the coast of Kerala, killing the fisherman. The Italians said they mistook the victims to be pirates.

"At the moment there are considerable differences of a judicial nature," Terzi told reporters here.

Terzi said local politics was adding to the difficulty of resolving the diplomatic differences.

The two Marines have been arrested and charged with murder. The Italians say the incident took place in international waters and the Italians should be tried in Italy. India disputes this.
