An explosion was reported near a post office in central Rome today, Italian media said. No injuries were in the blast, which could have been a paper or parcel bomb.
The blast occurred during business hours in the parking area of the post office with the bomb being placed between two parked cars.
Initial information suggests a car has been damaged. The post office is located at the residential Testaccio neighbourhood and is near the foot of the Aventine Hill.
No one has claimed responsibility for the explosion, similar ones in the past in Italian cities have been blamed on ‘anarchists’.
