ROME — Italian news reports say an explosive device has been found in a subway car in Rome.

The ANSA and Apcom news agency said the device was found Tuesday inside a train during a stop in Rebibbia, on the outskirts of Rome.

ANSA cited a press release by the Atac company that runs the subway. Nobody was immediately available at Atac.

The area was cleared and bomb disposal experts were examining the device, according to the reports.

Apcom said the device had been left in a grocery bag underneath a seat, and was spotted by the conductor in the morning.

“area cleared while device is being examined”

Probably some kid that lost one of his firecrackers.

muslims do have a unique way of celebrating Christmas- by trying to kill people

I didn’t know Rome had a subway. Been twice and never noticed. Guess I was focussed on all above ground. Boy do I feel clueless. Though Rome is beautiful, above ground is very dirty...can only imagine the state of underground. Maybe that is why the tour companies avoid it.

No wonder the left likes mass transportation so much - it’s easier to kill people when they’re all huddled together in a stink subway car.

Hope there aren’t any others - the people of Italy certainly don’t need this.

Rome has a great subway system. You have to watch out for pickpockets on it, but then, you have to do that all over Rome.

I hope they’re checking all the trains right now. If this really is an explosive device, I’d doubt it was the only one.

Too true. Pickpockets are a plague and a half just about everywhere, including New York!

Give me the good old days, when the only thing you had to worry about on the train was getting your pocket picked - not getting blown up.

The Muzzies could shut down Rome pretty easily just by planting fake and real explosives all over the city.

I really think you're on to something there... government project housing, food banks, unemployment offices, bus depots, TSA security lines, etc., all put the sheep in a holding pen waiting for the slaughter.

When you type in the "img src" (leave off quote marks) command add "width=XXX" after the second quotation marks.

For example (substitute >< for {}): {img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/05/Rome_subway_graffiti.jpg" width=800} and the browser will automatically size the pic to fit 800 pixels.

Also, if you right click on any image on the net one of the menu options should be "image properties" or something similar. That will pull up a box that will tell you the size in kb and in pixels. It will give you reference as to what the actual numbers are and what you might want to adjust to when making the post.

Also, also, you can use the height command in the same way. Be careful though that you use just the height or the width command. You can use both but if you don't maintain the aspect ratio it could look like this...

Yeah, it came out kind of cool. I wasn't expecting that. Almost like a panorama. I used width=800 height=200.

Muslims would love to make a major hit against Christianity in Rome during the time of Christmas festivities.

IMO, they would see this as a major coup.

We were there 2-1/2 years ago and watched while a guy standing in the aisle next to us was trying to pickpocket the guy standing in front of us (very crowded car, we were sitting). I was waiting for things to get a little more advanced than they had gone to grab the guy’s wrist (like the wallet moved a little), when the guy in the aisle saw me watching and stopped. I warned the target, and the perp exited at the next stop or so.

It’s a very nice subway - clean and well-lit, including the bathrooms. I’d trade DC metro for it in a heartbeat.

Latest is that explosives were present, but no means of detonation.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40764880/ns/world_news-europe/

So will they simultaneously NOT explode? Guess so!

“usually they self-destruct ... a paper bag is a different MO”

once they have access to the Internet in the west, jihadis would rather set bombs & run away so they can go back to their nasty porn collection.

Self-detonation is a lot rarer in the west than in their own countries.

Could have fooled me. You've been around a while and have posted plenty of pics. I am kind of surprised you didn't know all this.

You change font colors using font color=@@@@@commands.
