Three historic monuments have been attacked by vandals in the Italian capital, Rome.
In the first attack, a man was caught on security cameras chipping two pieces off a marble statue on a fountain in the Piazza Navona.
Hours later tourists watched as a man threw a rock at the famous Trevi Fountain in the centre of the city.
Police then said they caught an American student scaling a wall of the Colosseum to chip off pieces of marble. . . .
Part of an Egyptian obelisk brought to Rome 2,000 years ago has just been covered in graffiti.
