Italy on Easter -- State Department Warning

Anyone who is in Italy or who will be on Easter Sunday may want to take a look at this article that just appeared in the Washington Post.

Has anyone anything to offer regarding security, or lack thereof, at the Vatican on Easter morning?

I have two dear relatives there, and while I wouldn't dream of going there for that occasion in the current atmosphere, I also wouldn't dream of telling them not to go, since it's the highlight of their lives.

The following is part of the State Department Warning:
As stated in the Department of State's Worldwide Caution dated March 17,
2002, the U.S. Government continues to receive credible reports that
extremists are planning additional terrorist actions against U.S. interests.
The U.S. Government has learned that a possible threat exists to U.S.
citizens in the cities of Venice, Florence, Milan and Verona on Easter
Sunday, March 31, 2002, from extremist groups.

Given the level of security around the Pope, I would feel safe at the Vatican. Just try to blend in.
