Wire service retracts reports on Pope’s lung
April 02, 2013
The Associated Press has corrected its earlier reports on an operation involving one of Pope Francis’s lungs.
“In some stories from 2005 and March 2013 about Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who became Pope Francis last month, The Associated Press erroneously reported that Bergoglio had a lung removed as a teenager,” the wire service stated. “Bergoglio suffered an infection at 21, and … doctors removed the upper part of his right lung after finding three cysts,” according to a recently published book.
