U.S. citizens confess to killing Italian police officer

U.S. citizens confess to killing Italian police officer

Two 19-year-old U.S. citizens have confessed to a fatal knife attack on a Carabinieri police officer in Rome, police said on Monday.

The alleged perpetrators were arrested after they were located in a hotel room, where police also found the knife believed to have been used in the attack behind a ceiling panel.

They both confessed to the attack during an interrogation after being taken into police custody.

“Police officer Mario Cerciello Rega, 35, was fatally stabbed eight times overnight into Friday in Rome’s central Prati district near the Vatican.

Rega was among several officers involved in a plain clothes operation against two thieves who had stolen a backpack from an Italian man.

“The thieves had offered to return the backpack to the victim in exchange for 100 euros and a gram of cocaine, after reporting the crime to police, the man arranged a meeting point with the thieves.

“When the Carabinieri showed up instead, they were attacked with a knife. ”

Police had previously said that the perpetrator of the stabbing was probably an African citizen, a description that unleashed caustic commentary from the ruling far-right League party.

However, a police statement did not clarify which of the two teens carried out the attack.
