U.S. may free jailed Italian activist

                   WASHINGTON - The United States is considering returning a jailed radical
                   to her native Italy, a gesture that could appease anger over acquittal of an
                   American military pilot in 20 deaths at an Italian ski resort, legal and
                   diplomatic sources say. Justice Department officials plan to meet with their
                   Italian counterparts within a few weeks to discuss letting Silvia Baraldini, 51,
                   serve the balance of her 40-year term in Italy, said sources who spoke on
                   condition of anonymity. She has been behind bars for 16 years. Baraldini was
                   convicted of attempted robbery for trying to rob a Brinks armored truck and
                   of kidnapping for her role in the prison breakout of a Black Liberation Army
