Italy Braces for Violence When Bush Visits

Italy is prepared for “potential violence” this week during Bush’s visit. The US Embassy warns Americans to avoid areas where crowds may gather. "Not all demonstrations are expected to be peaceful. There is potential for violence."

Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu has said he was "concerned but not frightened" by what he called serious threats during the 36-hour visit that starts on Thursday night. "There are groups that are preparing an exercise in violence and three days of provocations," said Massimo Brutti, a leftist senator who is on the secret services oversight committee.
