Police in Rome are searching the Tiber River for twin 6-month-old sisters after recovering the body of their mother.
Police said Thursday they had retrieved the body of the mother from the rain-swollen river that runs through the capital. The search continued for the girls with police diver boats and on shore nearby.
A police official speaking on customary condition of anonymity said the father woke up Thursday morning and called police to report his family missing.
Around the same time, a truck driver called police to report having seen a woman throw herself from the Testaccio Bridge, near one of the city’s main open-air produce markets, at around 6:20 a.m.
