New York mayor rebukes police over funeral snub

The mayor of New York has rebuked hundreds of the city's police officers who turned their backs on him as he spoke at the funerals of two officers.

Bill de Blasio said the public snubbing had been disrespectful to the families of the two men and to the city.

Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were shot dead last month by a gunman with a grievance against the police.

Many police officers have resented the mayor's expressions of sympathy for anti-police protesters in recent months.
