Rome's Colosseum lit up to mark N.J., U.N. death penalty decisions

The ancient Colosseum is lit up in support of the recent elimination of the death penalty in New Jersey, the first US state to abolish capital punishment, and the recent approval of a UN resolution calling for a moratorium on the death penalty, in Rome, Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2007. Rome's Colosseum, once the arena for deadly gladiator combat and executions, has become a symbol of the fight against capital punishment.
