Bomb scare forces evacuation at Colosseum in Rome 

Someone planted a suspicious device that forced the evacuation of the Colosseum in Rome on Sunday, but it turned out to be a false alarm.  The Colosseum was evacuated about an hour before the site was scheduled to close after tourists saw a suspicious device inside. A Carabinieri bomb squad detonated the device, which turned out to be a tin can half filled with paint thinner, with two electrical wires running from a 9-volt battery.
