Rome increases security at Christmas markets

Anti-terrorism measures for Rome's museums and main shopping streets.

Rome has increased its security measures at the city's Christmas markets and main shopping streets in response to the Christmas market gun attack in Strasbourg in which three people were killed and 12 injured, including an Italian radio journalist whose condition is described as inoperable.
Security will also be stepped up at major shopping outlets, museums and places of worship, according to measures introduced by Rome police chief Guido Marino.
