Youths pass a sign outside San Siro stadium announcing the suspension of a match between the Italian Serie A soccer league's top two teams, Inter Milan and AS Roma, in Milan February 4, 2007. The Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) held an emergency meeting on Sunday as soccer stadiums fell silent for the second day in a row after a policeman died following fan violence in the Sicilian city of Catania on Friday. All soccer matches from children's leagues to the national team's friendly against Romania on Wednesday have been cancelled while the authorities consider draconian measures such as matches behind closed doors.
