    Police fired water cannon at protesters in Rome on Tuesday after hundreds gathered in the Italian capital to vent their anger over the latest measures aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19. Footage showed protesters hurling what appeared to be flares towards the police. They were protesting against new restrictions that have forced restaurants and cafes to close early and shuttered cinema, gyms and other leisure venues. The government imposed at least a month of new restrictions across the country Sunday to fight rising coronavirus infections. Italy has surpassed half a million confirmed coronavirus cases since February, when it became the first country in Europe stricken by the pandemic.
