Italian police launch investigation into picture showing blindfolded US suspect in Rome police murder

Italian police launch investigation into picture showing blindfolded US suspect in Rome police murderItalian police have launched an investigation into a picture showing a US student suspected of killing an officer, in a blindfold and handcuffs soon after the arrest. Two American teenagers were arrested on Saturday in Rome accused of the stabbing murder of Italian military police officer Mario Cerciello Rega in a drug deal gone awry.  Finnegan Lee Elder, 19, and Gabriel Christian Natale-Hjorth, 18, are both from San Francisco and had been holidaying in the Italian capital. The pair are due in court on Monday to face charges of murder and extortion.  Investigators said they stole the backpack of a man who helped them buy ‘fake’ cocaine and demanded 100 euros and a gram of the real drug for its return. People arrive to pay respect in the church where Carabinieri officer Mario Cerciello Rega was laid in state, in Rome, Sunday, July 28, 2019 Credit: AP The intermediary told police of the theft and two plainclothes officers went to the rendezvous, where Mr Rega was stabbed 11 times in a brawl.  According to a statement by the Carabinieri, the Americans confessed to the crime after police found a knife hidden in the ceiling of their hotel room. Both men are being held in Rome’s Regina Coeli prison, where nearly 1000 inmates are crammed into an ageing convent intended for 650. Mr Natale-Hjorth and Mr Elder attended Tamalpais High School together in Mill Valley, California, one of the five richest post-codes in the United States.  In California, the Elder family posted a handwritten note on their door asking for privacy and released a statement expressing condolences to Rega’s grieving family. "We are shocked and dismayed at the events that have been reported, but have very little independent information about these events. We have not been able to have any communication with our son," read the statement. According to Italian media reports citing police, Mr Elder confessed to the killing but said he did not realize that Rega was a police officer because the officers involved were both in plainclothes and he did not understand Italian. The picture of Mr Natale-Hjorth with head bowed and eyes covered by a blue blindfold at a police station started circulating on the Internet on Saturday and was published by several Italian newspapers on Sunday. Francesco Codini, Mr Elder’s lawyer, said his client exercised his right not to respond to questions during a Saturday court hearing, in which he was ordered to remain in jail.  ‘The investigation is ongoing and our work has only just begun,’’ Mr Codini told the Telegraph.

Journalists detained for hours after showing Nicolas Maduro images of poverty in Venezuela

Journalists detained for hours after showing Nicolas Maduro images of poverty in VenezuelaA crew from US-based television network Univision said it was detained for more than two hours in Venezuela after offending President Nicolas Maduro during an interview by asking questions about poverty and his legitimacy to govern. Maduro "disliked the questions in the interview and stopped the recording, confiscated the equipment and detained the six journalists," said Univision, one of the biggest Spanish-language TV networks in the United States. "The crew of six Univision Noticias journalists headed by Jorge Ramos was released after being held at the Miraflores Palace for nearly three hours on the orders of Nicolas Maduro," the network added. Ramos told Univision that the entire team had later arrived back at their hotel. The journalist said he had showed Maduro footage of children sifting through garbage for something to eat and that Maduro halted the interview and left. Jorge Ramos said Maduro 'disliked the questions' after he showed the president a video of people scavenging from the back of a rubbish truck "I had asked him if he was a president or a dictator, because millions of Venezuelans do not consider him the legitimate president," Ramos said. Ramos said he had brought up opposition leader and self-declared interim president Juan Guaido's charges that Maduro has effectively usurped power because, Guaido argues, Maduro won re-election last year through fraud. "We were detained, there is no other word for it, for nearly three hours" at Maduro's presidential palace, Ramos told reporters. He said he and his team hope to get their equipment back and fly to Miami Tuesday. Guaido tweeted about the incident with Ramos, saying Maduro's "desperation is greater every day. He could not answer his questions." The US State Department earlier said it had been notified that Ramos and his team were being held against their will at the Miraflores. "We insist on their immediate release; the world is watching," it tweeted.
