Two embassy bombs explode in Rome
A pair of package bombs exploded at the Swiss and Chilean embassies in Rome on Thursday, injuring the two people who opened them, police and news reports said. There was no claim of responsibility but authorities discounted domestic anarchists or protesters.
The first explosion, a package bomb at the Swiss Embassy, seriously wounded the person who opened it, police said.
A second bomb exploded at the Chilean Embassy shortly afterwards, wounding one person, who was taken to a hospital, according to police.
And a "suspicious package" was found at the Ukrainian Embassy in the Italian capital, police said, but it turned out not to be dangerous.
Police began their sweeps of all embassies and consulates after the blasts, they said. Many countries have two diplomatic missions in the city -- one to the Italian state and a separate one to the Vatican.
