Francis Visit in Iraq: No Fiesta

Francis will use an armoured car during his March 5-8 trip to Iraq, Vatican sources told

The visit follows a series of attacks in several Iraqi cities in recent weeks, including a rocket attack on US occupation forces.

Francis has never used an armoured car on his previous 32 trips outside Italy. While in Rome, he likes to display his humility by ostentatively driving around in a Ford Fiesta.

I can't wait to see the Pope-Mobile! This thing might have to roll over mines and shrug off rockets. It's gonna be a beast!
Mossul awaits Francis
