Envelope containing three bullets sent to Pope Francis

An envelope addressed to Pope Francis containing three pistol bullets has been seized in a mail sorting facility close to the northern Italian city of Milan, police said on Monday.

Postal workers called the police after intercepting the envelope overnight in the small town of Peschiera Borromeo.

Police told Reuters the envelope, sent from France, was addressed to “The Pope, Vatican City, St Peter’s Square.”

A Vatican spokesperson had no immediate comment.

2. Them - or probably someone like them

Francis has many enemies in the Catholic right - particularly in the powerful sect Opus Dei.

Though careful not to attack him directly, Opus Dei - very influential in the Spanish-speaking Catholic world - has been using its media and political surrogates against Francis since day one.
