• Vatican shrugs off IS plot against Pope


    VATICAN CITY: Warnings that the Islamic State (IS) organization may be plotting to attack Pope Francis during his visit to mostly-Muslim Albania on Sunday have been shrugged off by the Vatican. Despite warnings from Iraq’s ambassador to the Holy See that the 77-year-old could be in danger—and reports in the Italian media of new IS recruits returning from the Middle East to Albania—the Vatican said security measures would remain unchanged.
