Four officials accused of negligence and multiple manslaughter in the October 2001 Milan runway collision disaster have been sentenced to jail terms ranging from 6 to 8 years. Judges gave eight-year prison sentences to the director of the Linate airport and the air traffic controller who was on duty at the time. The former CEO of Italy's air traffic control agency ENAV, and the person who oversees Milan's two airports, were sentenced to six years and six months apiece. (CNN)
