Rome’s mayor says a device found in a subway car in Rome could not have exploded.
Gianni Alemanno was quoted as saying by the ANSA news agency that after examination, bomb-disposal experts said “the device could not have exploded.”
The device was found Tuesday morning inside a train during a stop at the Rebibbia station, on the outskirts of Italian capital.
The area was cleared of people, according to reports.
The Apcom news agency said the device had been left in a grocery bag underneath a seat, and was spotted by the conductor in the morning.
