Suspected Car Bomb Discovered Close To Italy Vs Switzerland Stadium.
A suspected bomb has been discovered attached to a car parked in the Piazza Mancini area, which is close to the stadium hosting Wednesday night’s Euro 2020 clash.
According to reports from Italian media, it was a fan that spotted the suspicious item inside a parked Smart car while he was heading to the stadium- the fan alerted police at around 6pm BST.
A bomb squad finally destroyed the item in a controlled explosion. Italian publication Il Messaggero reports police sources as saying the device was homemade. It contained a cylinder of gunpowder, with shrapnel embedded and electric wires sticking out.
A bizarre incident took place just before the kick-off between Germany and France in Munich on Tuesday night as a protestor parachuted into the stadium, hitting camera lines and almost crashing into supporters, before being briskly led away by the members of the grounds security team.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
