Bomb found on train in Rome, official says

[Update 11:30 a.m.] The device found on a train in Rome could not have exploded, officials say.

[Original post] A bomb was found under a train seat Tuesday in Rome, a City Hall spokesman said. It is not clear whether the device could have exploded or who left it, Marco Dell'Asta said.

Train officials found the package containing the device about 10 a.m. at the Rebibbia stop on the outskirts of the city, he said. A police bomb squad and the fire brigade are on the scene, Dell'Asta added.

    Only way a bomb will explode properly is if it's attached to a muslim or inside of a muslim's car. This one was found under a seat on a train; Rome will be safe.
