Italy bans flights over Rome
Seems as if the terror warning for the Vatican was not all hot air after all:
The Italian authorities Tuesday banned flights over Rome until Jan. 6 as a security measure against terrorist attack, the Italian news agency Ansa reported.
This was part of a heightened state of alert in Italy, Ansa said.
On Dec. 24, Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi told a local Milan paper that terrorists had planned to crash a hijacked plane into the Vatican on Christmas Day.
Seems as if all over the world there is some sort of planning to abort terror attacks that are synchonized for New Years Day. Keep your eyes peeled folks – for threats both foreign and domestic:

Inside the home and storage facilities of William Krar, investigators found a sodium-cyanide bomb capable of killing thousands, more than a hundred explosives, half a million rounds of ammunition, dozens of illegal weapons, and a mound of white-supremacist and antigovernment literature.
