"An Italian court has ordered the government to pay €100 million ($137 million) in civil damages to relatives of 81 people killed in a 1980 aircraft disaster that remains one of Italy's most enduring mysteries. The government said Tuesday it would appeal the decision of the Palermo civil tribunal, which on Monday held Italy's transport and defense ministries liable for having failed to guarantee the security of the flight."
