Protests at Nazi war criminal funeral

The funeral service for a Nazi war criminal in Italy was called off after protesters surrounded the hearse.

Eic Priebka was jailed for life in 1998, over the killing of more than 300 civilians in 1944.

The former German SS officer died while under house arrest last week.
