A LONE MOTORBIKE RIDER TAKES A BEND ON A DESERTED FREEWAY AS ITALIAN
POLICE SEAL OFF GENOA'S OLD TOWN....
A lone motorbike rider takes a bend on a freeway above a police
encampment as Italian police seal off Genoa's old town July 19, 2001 to
protect a weekend Group of Eight summit against an onslaught by
anti-globalisation demonstrators. With concrete barricades and steel
mesh fences, the police closed off a key-shaped 'red zone' including
the 13th century Ducal Palace where the G8 leaders will meet and the
old port where most of them will sleep on board a luxury ocean liner.
