Vatican unworried by reports of NSA monitoring cardinals' phones

October 30, 2013

An Italian magazine has reported that the US National Security Agency (NSA) monitored the phone conversations of Vatican officials. But the director of the Vatican press office has told reporters that “we have nothing to worry about.”

“There are no concerns on this matter,” said Father Federico Lombardi, in a statement released to reporters after the magazine Panorama reported that the NSA had eavesdropped on conversations at the Vatican. The magazine claimed that the NSA monitoring included the conversations of cardinals who gathered in Rome in March for the conclave that elected Pope Francis.
