Two hundred yards from the Colosseum - where condemned men once fought wild animals - modern-day prison inmates face a rather different task: cleaning up rubbish in a park frequented by dog walkers and toddlers. In a first for Italy, 14 prisoners in blue denim shirts and brown trousers were at work on Tuesday in Rome’s Oppian Hill park, using rakes and shovels to collect rubbish and tip it into black plastic bags. With the uppermost levels of the Colosseum looming between the pine trees, they were guarded by prison officers in blue berets, who provided security and outnumbered the inmates three to one. The initiative, organised by Rome council, will benefit parks and gardens across the capital, eventually involving 100 prisoners. They will be put to work in places like Villa Sciarra, a once elegant, palm-lined park on the Janiculum Hill which has been badly damaged by vandalism and neglect, and Piazza Vittorio, a colonnaded square in the city centre which has … [Read more...] about Italy puts prisoners to work cleaning up long-neglected parks and gardens

Celebrities have been paying tribute to Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park, who was found dead by apparent suicide on Thursday (20 July) at his Palos Verdes Estate in Los Angeles. The 41-year-old father-of-six reportedly "hanged himself," law enforcement officials said. The vocalist was close friends with Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell, who committed suicide in May. Bennington wrote an open letter to Cornell on the day of his suicide. It read: "You have inspired me in ways you could never have known... I can't imagine a world without you in it." Cornell, who was found dead at the MGM Grand hotel in Detroit, would have been 53 on the day Bennington died. Celebrities took to Twitter to express their condolences for Bennington's death and to share how his music helped them through their own difficult times. Ohio Governor John Kasich (R) also expressed his sorrow, noting he remains a "big fan" of Linkin Park.
