Rome was staging its first anti-terrorism exercise Monday with simulated attacks on the Colosseum, a subway station and a downtown bus.
The drill was to start with a simulated suicide bombing at the Colosseum, followed by further simulated attacks at Rome's deepest subway station, Piazza Repubblica, and on a bus near Piazza Navona.
The drill is designed to test coordination between law enforcement officials and emergency workers in the case of a terrorist attack.
Authorities staged a similar exercise last month in Milan, and plan to conduct further drills in Turin, which hosts the winter Olympics in February, and Naples, reports the AP. I.L.
