Vandals daub paint on Rome museum

Breaking News

Vandals have splashed red and green paint onto the back wall of the controversial modern museum, the Ara Pacis, in Rome.

They also left a toilet outside and several rolls of toilet paper.

The museum, designed by the American architect Richard Meier, was opened in 2006 to house a 2,000-year-old carved marble altar of the Emperor Augustus.

Many criticised the building, in Rome's historic centre, as too modern, too large, and out of character.
