ROME - Italian police uncovered an illegal rubbish dump hidden in the remains of ancient Roman catacombs on Monday and sealed off the area while they investigate alleged environmental pollution.

Underground caverns and tunnels used as tombs since the second century B.C. had been filled with harmful waste over the years, creating an underground lake of acrid oil, Italian media reported.
