ROME — Bomb squad teams were dispatched to the US Embassy to the Vatican on Wednesday after it reported a suspicious package — but it was a false alarm, police said.

Embassies in Rome have been on high alert for a week after anarchists mailed package bombs to at least three embassies in the Italian capital. Two exploded, injuring the people who opened them.

There have also been more than a dozen false alarms in recent days as embassy staff comb through mail backlogs following the Christmas holidays.

Police at the site of the Embassy, overlooking the Circus Maximus field, said the latest report was a false alarm.
