Battle of the Oranges in Italy makes for a juicy mess

Posted: Updated:
ITALY - It was a frenzy of juicy missiles as the Battle of the Oranges gets underway in northern Italy.  The event marks an important medieval event as one town recalls the insurrection against a tyrant.

Participants are split into nobility and commoners and the oranges represent the oppressor's head.

Locals say the event is more important to them than Christmas or Easter.
