Ilva workers participate in a rally outside the Italian parliament, in Rome, Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012. Ilva, a steel plant in southern Italy at the center of an environmental scandal announced that it plans to close after police acting on prosecutors' warrants sequestered recent steel products bound for the market. Any closure would be a blow to the Italian government, which has been working to keep the Ilva steel plant operating while addressing health concerns amid reports of an elevated incidence of cancer in the area.
