ROME (Reuters) - Police evacuated one of the terminals at Rome's Fiumicino airport, Italy's busiest, for "controls", a spokesman said on Wednesday, without providing further details.

The airport has been plagued by fires and blackouts this year, prompting national carrier Alitalia to threaten to move its hub elsewhere.
