Rome, September 4 - Police have foiled 'tomb raiders' looting an ancient Roman archaeological site near the capital that was previously unknown to the Italian authorities, investigators said on Wednesday. The site is located near the ruins of a temple devoted to Juno ''The Saviour'' at Lanuvio, in the Castelli Romani (Castles of Rome) - a cluster of towns southeast of Rome.
