Rome, August 7 - Italian police forces said on
Wednesday that they are ratcheting up security in and around the
United States embassy in Rome as threats of terrorist attacks
against American targets abroad persist.
Special dog units and bomb squads are closely monitoring
sewers, drains and public trash cans in the city, especially in
the area around the embassy and other diplomatic offices.
The US State Department has upped security for its
diplomatic missions around the world and on Sunday closed
embassies in a number of countries in North Africa, the Middle
East and Europe until next Saturday.
A bomb alarm Tuesday at the United States' consulate in
Milan was raised due to a threat that came in a letter delivered
to the consulate filled with threatening phrases referring to
explosives.
That triggered special safety procedures including a
preventative evacuation of the consulate.
A nearby subway line was closed for a period while police
investigated the false threat but was later re-opened.
