Two prisoners who had been invited to meet Pope Francis for lunch on his latest visit to Bologna took benefit of the event to escape, native media experiences stated Wednesday.

The two males, who had been being held in a rehabilitation facility for drug addicts and prisoners, had been reportedly amongst 20 prisoners who had been due to meet Francis on October 1.

They disappeared both simply earlier than or simply after the lunch and haven’t been seen since, in accordance to experiences that native authorities haven’t confirmed or denied.

Francis has made mercy one of many themes of his papacy and often meets prisoners on his journeys outdoors the Vatican. (AFP)
