Tourist who ‘wanted to see the pope’ smashes busts at the Vatican Museums

CNA, Zelda Caldwell: A man visiting the Vatican museums in Rome on Wednesday flung two ancient Roman busts to the ground, causing moderate damage to the valuable works of art.

According to an article in the newspaper Il Messaggero, the middle-aged American tourist asked to see the pope and became enraged when told that would not be possible. He then threw one bust to the ground and knocked the other over while trying to run away. Report is here.
