Offbeat - AFP
ROME (AFP) - A mystery bug has paralysed remote control devices for opening car doors, garages and gates in a district of the town of Aosta in northern Italy, an environmental protection agency said.

The agency, ARPA, admitted it had as yet no idea what the problem was.
Tests on local electro-magnetic fields had registered nothing abnormal and domestic alarm systems were working normally, it said.
ARPA said it was conducting tests comparing signals emitted by the remote control devices in the affected district and those in other parts of town.
Meanwhile local residents have been obliged since Thursday to fish for their keys to open or lock their cars and garage doors and the gates to their villas.
