(ANSA) – ROME, NOV 17 – A group of Italian students waved a Palestinian flag from the Leaning Tower of Pisa on Friday.
    The raid was carried out by by some fifteen students belonging to ‘antagonist’ anticapitalist movements who broke into the Tower of Pisa, overcoming controls, and displayed a giant Palestine flag from the world’s most famous bell tower.
    They also lit a couple of smoke bombs before descending. No damage was reported.
    According to what the police reconstructed, the studnets acted at the end of a pacifist procession of about 500 people that this morning went through the main streets of the centre to Piazza dei Miracoli, where Pisa’s cathedral and bell tower are located.
    The raid lasted a few minutes and ended in an orderly manner.
