Vatican police officers conducted a riot-control drill on May 2, practicing to control unruly demonstrations.
Members of the Vatican gendarmerie, in full riot gear, were trained by instructors from Italian forces, in the courtyard of their headquarters inside the Vatican. The unusual training exercise signals a move to upgrade preparation for possible disturbances at the Vatican.
