In the news
Pope Francis has just arrived in Brazil and was greeting by millions. He chose to leave the traditional bullet proof “Popemobile” back in Rome and chose an open jeep instead. While traveling via motorcade, his vehicle was swarmed by mobs of people trying to get a glimpse and handshake from the Pontiff who had his window open. Security forces wrestled with people as they stormed the vehicle.
The Pope even got stuck in traffic which must have been a nightmare for security. Nevertheless, all went well and the Pontiff arrived safely to the official welcoming ceremony.
Prior to his arrival in Brazil, the military found a homemade explosive at the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida. The bomb was destroyed.
