Italy's Carabinieri, Guardia di Finanza (Financial police) and Polizia Penitenziaria (Corps of penitentiary officers) paid tribute to two police officers killed in an assault at Trieste Police Headquarters on Friday, in footage filmed in Rome on Saturday.

Security forces from the three different departments rallied and sirens rang in honour of policemen Pierluigi Rotta and Matteo Demenego, while officers stood in line performing a military salute.

Friday's shooting occurred when a suspected thief held inside Trieste police station asked to go to the toilet, before grabbing his accompanying officer's gun and shooting both officers. A third policeman was left injured.
