Protester on St. Peter's Basilica Gives Up

An Italian man has given up his protest atop the St. Peter's Basilica after more than 24 hours perched on the 130-meter (426-foot) high dome to demonstrate against government reforms.

Two firefighters helped pull Marcello De Finizio inside the basilica on Wednesday evening, a full day after he eluded Vatican security to scale the dome.
