The Italian capital was preparing Friday for a high-security lockdown as 27 heads of state or government head to Rome for the European Union's 60th anniversary celebrations.Snipers will be positioned on rooftops, drones in the skies, and 3,000 police officers on the streets around the center of the Eternal City Saturday as Italy takes no risks following an attack this week in London claimed by the so-called Islamic State (IS).Some 30,000 protesters are expected to take part in four separate marches -- both pro- and anti-Europe -- throughout the day, with two coming from opposite ends of town to meet at the Colosseum.Access to two areas around the celebrations -- so-called blue and green zones -- will be tightly controlled.
