Zombies flood Venice streets

Zombies and zombie hunters clashed in Venice, Italy, as part of the Carnival of Venice, which runs until March. The eclectic programme of parades, dances, masquerade balls, gala dinners and music events launched on 15 February, when hundreds of the living dead hobbled, crawled, and groaned their way through the city – closely followed by armed hunters determined to quash the zombie threat.
