Police: Genoa Protester Who Was Shot Is Dead

GENOA (Reuters) - A protester who was shot on Friday during rioting at a Group of Eight summit in Genoa has died, an Italian police spokesman said.

Earlier, a Reuters photographer saw the protester get shot twice by paramilitary police after throwing a fire extinguisher at a police van as anti-globalization demonstrators clashed with police in the port city.

The demonstrator fell to the ground and then was run over by a Carabinieri jeep, the photographer said. It was not known whether he had died.

The incident occurred amid rioting in the Mediterranean port city on the first day of a three-day Group of Eight summit.
