The body of a Jordanian national that was charged with murdering the Italian pro-Palestinian activist was returned to Jordan from Gaza Friday through the Erez crossing at the Israeli border, Palestinian news channel Ma'an reported officials as saying.

Abdul-Rahman Al-Breizat died last Tuesday during a Hamas raid of a building housing him and other suspected killers of Vittorio Arrigoni. There were mixed reports as to the cause of the suspect's death, with Hamas saying Breizat shot himself when Hamas forces raided the building and family members rejecting that his son would have committed suicide.

Ma'an quoted Breizat's father as saying it "does not make sense that he killed himself. Islam forbids that. They killed him."
