CWN Editor's Note: A man who was identified as a priest from the Czech Republic was detained by police during the papal audience on May 5, after he was discovered to be carrying an air gun, two knives, and a box cutter.

In April, a convict who was on the “most wanted” list in the state of New York was arrested in St. Peter’s Square just before a papal audience. He was carrying three knives.

Police have not confirmed that either man was regarded as a threat to Pope Francis.
