ROME (Reuters) - Seven people were taken to hospital for checks after a suspect package at Italy's labor ministry containing powder raised fears of possible anthrax contamination, but the parcel was found to be harmless.
A ministry spokesman confirmed it was a false alarm after officials inspected the package at the offices in central Rome.
Activists have carried out a number of violent protests during Italy's economic crisis, with tax collection agencies among the chief targets of mainly symbolic attacks with firecrackers or paint bombs.
