Pope’s 3 relatives die in Argentina accident



Buenos Aires: Two infant grandnephews of Pope Francis and their mother were killed early on Tuesday when their car slammed into the back of a truck in Argentina, authorities said.

The pope's nephew Emanuel Horacio Bergoglio, who was behind the wheel at the time of the crash, was in serious condition, they said.

His children — aged eight months and two years old — were killed in the crash along with their mother, Cordoba police commissioner Carina Ferreyra told AFP.

Deeply pained

Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said the pope had been informed about the accident and was "deeply pained."

"He asks all those who share in his pain to join him in prayer," Lombardi added.
