A stand-off between Italian riot police and protesters during which police used tear gas has ended without further incident.
The tensions took place when anarchists, communists and other anti-global protesters held a demonstration after the Group of Seven summit in Taormina, Sicily.
The protest took place in Giardini Naxos, a seaside town near Taormina, where the leaders had met for two days.
The leaders had left before the protest began.
