An explosion occurred in the center of Rome, and at least one car was damaged in the blast, according to local media reports. No information on casualties was immediately available.
There have been conflicting reports on the exact location of the blast, with some media saying the blast occurred near a post office, while other sources report it happened near the UN building.

Looks to be minor - parcel bomb perhaps?

Say that to a family member that has his/her fingers ripped off by a "Ahem" minor explosion...

I lived most of my young life in Northern Ireland and was also a soldier to know what "Minor" means...

As long as your family and loved ones are not touched then this is minor...!!!?

Could be anything, such as a gas leak.

no offence intended, i meant it was minor compared to the atrocities we normally hear about out of Europe when ''explosions'' are mentioned.

If only somebody's fingers are damaged, then yes it is a very minor explosion. Considering explosions typically kill a person, or multiples of people, I think most family would be grateful if a loved one walked away from an explosion with only damaged hands.

I do not consider any bomb attack as minor... even if only fingers are ripped off... fingers might be faces too...

If they havnt been spread across the landscape in an unrecognizable smattering of meat, loved ones will be quite grateful that it was not a bigger bomb.

Bomb attacks in general are no minor thing, you are correct. I guess we should simply rephrase from minor to small to better quantify the yield and potency of said detonation.

Relax. He wasn't attacking anyone or saying anything wrong. A parcel bomb, though horrid, would be classed as a minor explosive. You need to relax with the aggression to a member who wasn't even talking to you.

Are we become so jaded that an explosion of this sort is "minor"?

Perhaps jaded is the wrong word for it...accustomed would be better. Sad isn't it?
