In pictures: Protester mourned
Nearly 1,000 people have attended the funeral in Genoa of Carlo Giuliani, who was shot dead by an Italian policeman during the recent G8 summit.

His parents asked for a simple funeral ceremony, as their 23-year-old son would have liked.

Mr Guiliani was the first fatality since the anti-globalization movement began staging protests at world meetings in 1999.
