Police identify 20 Lazio fans who put up Anne Frank images

A wreath of flowers with the colors of Lazio soccer club lies on the bank of the Tiber river in Rome after being removed from the wall of Rome’s Synagogue the day after Lazio’s president Claudio Lotito visited it and promised a new anti-Semitism education campaign after leaving a wreath of flowers. Lazio supporters on Sunday littered the Stadio Olimpico in Rome with images of Anne Frank, the young diarist who died in the Holocaust, wearing a jersey of city rival Roma. The ultra right-wing fans of Lazio associate their Roma counterparts with being left-wing and Jewish, and had hoped to incite Roma fans, since the teams share the same stadium. (ANSA via AP)
