Rome May 7 2015. Cancelled dozens of flights to and from Rome Fiumicino airport after a fire torn apart its international terminal.
The airport was closed for several hours but officials are working to get it fully operational again.
The overnight blaze – now extinguished – torn apart a shopping area at terminal 3 where few people were treated for smoke inhalation.
Thousands of passengers were hit by delays and many flights were diverted.
The fire broke out at about midnight (22:00 GMT) on Wednesday and took some five hours to bring under control.
TV pictures showed the terminal engulfed in flames overnight, then the burnt-out facade in the morning. Thick smoke was seen rising from the building until mid-morning.
Now the situation is back to normal.
