Rescue teams have found the body of missing Israeli student Hamada Hussein in the Italian town of L'aquila, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday afternoon. Twenty-three-year-old Hamada, from Kabul in the Western Galilee, had been studying at the University of L'Aquila for 14 months. Hussein's father, who flew to central Italy following Monday's earthquake, identified his son's body. The Israeli embassy in Italy will arrange for the body to be transferred to Israel as soon as possible.
