Rome, November 16 - Rome's chief of police said
Friday the tear gas canisters apparently fired from the justice
ministry building during recent anti-austerity protests were
released by police.
''The tear gas from the ministry was fired by police
agents: the canisters were fired in a parabola not in the
direction of the demonstrators. The trajectory was redirected
because the canisters hit the building,'' said Fulvio Della
Rocca.
Earlier in the day Justice Minister Paola Severino ordered
an internal investigation into the incident following calls for
clarification over an amateur video obtained by La Repubblica
newspaper apparently showing three tear gas canisters being
fired in quick succession from the second floor of the ministry
in Via Arenula on passing protesters.
The results of the probe are pending.
