Rome A metro line halted over backpack

Bomb squad, canines on the scene

(ANSA) - Rome, November 20 - Rome's A subway line was halted Friday after Army soldiers called police over a suspicious backpack at Cornelia station. The police bomb squad and the canine unit are on the scene.
    Circulation on the Ottaviano Battistini line was suspended. This comes after a bomb scare on the same line earlier on Friday and three on Thursday.
    A box proved to be empty on inspection at the Ottaviano station on the A line, near the Vatican.
    Two scares came on the A line and one on the C line Thursday.
    As well, there was a false alarm at the Duomo stop on Milan's metro, also Thursday.
    Experts have said the scares are signs of heightened public fears after the Paris terror attacks.
