Italy ramps up security at U.S. sites after Boston bombings

Fiumicino, April 16 - The American embassy, consulates and various U.S. institutions in Italy were under heightened security Tuesday following the explosions that killed three people near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday. Police forces were called to guard American university campuses, and Rome's major international airport Fiumicino upped security checks. Special attention was being paid to flights considered "at risk or sensitive," authorities said, namely on American or Israeli carriers. Organizers of the America's Cup World Series in Naples were "ramping up security" for the yachting event April 16-21, Campania Governor Stefano Caldoro told ANSA.
