Colosseum lights off in Rome in protest at Marines murder case

The lights at Rome's famous Colosseum were switched off as part of a protest against the forthcoming trial of two Italian marines in India.

They've been charged with murder after they fired at an Indian fishing boat that they said they mistook for a pirate vessel.
