Package at U.S. embassy to Vatican false alarm

ROME, Dec 29 (Reuters) - A suspect package found at the U.S. embassy to the Vatican turned out to be a false alarm, police in Rome said on Wednesday.

The discovery comes days after an Italian anarchist group claimed responsibility for two explosive packages sent to the Swiss and Chilean embassies in Rome before Christmas.

A third parcel bomb was found at the Greek embassy on Monday. (Reporting by Massimiliani Di Giorgio)
