Terror threat to La Scala?main
It is being reliably reported that the US Embassy in Italy has warned of a threat to ‘potential targets’, specifically St Peter’s Basilica in Rome and La Scala, Milan.
The Embassy has issued this notice in a warning to the Italian Government and to US citizens in Italy.
RAI has quoted Italian officials saying ‘there are no direct signs of concrete threats’ but the warning is being taken seriously. Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni says security services are ‘working to identify five people.’
