Bomb scare over at Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome

Mysterious black box deemed 'harmless'

Bomb scare over at Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome

Rome, November 21 - An evacuation order at Rome's historic Castel Sant'Angelo was called off Wednesday after a bomb squad inspected and dismissed as harmless an abandoned black box. Museum staff cleared the ancient structure, built originally as a tomb for the Roman emperor Hadrian, and called police when a box with antennae, batteries and a flashing LED was found next to a wall at the foot of a statue. Police later determined the box was harmless and allowed visitors to return to the historic site. The tomb was constructed on the right bank of the Tiber near what became the Vatican between 130 AD and 139 AD and was later turned into a castle for popes.
