    Some suspect a letter or parcel bomb. Premature detonation?

    • Some reports are saying the bomb was placed between two cars. At this point it’s hard to know what to believe.

    A secondary bomb alert has been issued for the Piazza di Porta Capena – just streets away from the UN’s Food and Agriculture Headquarters – police and bomb disposal experts have been deployed.

    Must have been spontaneous ignition due to the hot Italian climate. Nothing to do with anything you might be inclined to associate it with, based on past experience.

      This sort of thing will be more frequent with global warming.

    The post office is just across and down the Tiber from the Vatican, but nowhere near Termini Station where that female reporter got attacked by – oops, I mean had an interfaith dialogue with – those cultural enrichers. . .
