The police blew up this suspicious suitcase only to find a bunch of coconuts inside

Authorities at Rome’s Fiumicino airport blew up a suspicious suitcase but what they found inside turned out to be harmless

On October 1, Freelance journalist Ned Donovan reported that the Italian police had quarantined Rome’s Fiumicino airport to blow up a suspicious bag that ended up only containing a bunch of coconuts and some clothes. The incident had occurred in terminal 3.

“The Italian police have just blown up someone’s bag in Rome Airport and are now going through someone’s pants,” he tweeted. “Amazing, the Italian police have blown up a bag full of coconuts and have now reopened Rome airport.”

Donovan later said that the “whole thing took at least 15 minutes” and “They stopped anyone going airside while dealing with it and no one was allowed to come into the terminal.” Donovan also reported that the authorities blew up the suitcase while many people were still inside the terminal – some as close as 30 feet away.

It did not take the people of Twitter long to add in their commentary about the situation.
