Pope’s guards face a professional challenge

There's been a security scare at the Vatican. A man leapt over barriers and tried to jump into the “popemobile” – Supreme Pontiff’s car for public appearances – during Pope Benedict's weekly audience.

The man only managed to touch the moving car before being wrestled to the ground by security guards.

Vatican sources say the unarmed man was a 27 year-old German who wanted to attract attention to him rather than harm the Pope. It was the first serious security breach in the Vatican involving Pope Benedict.
