SECURITY specialists are sweeping the Vatican for bugs and installing jamming devices to stop any errant cardinals using their mobile phones in the lead-up to next week's secret papal vote.

The security squad will rip open cushions, scrutinise carpets, inspect ventilation shafts and check that pipes, electrical wiring and lights are where they are supposed to be, La Repubblica newspaper reported.

Getting very political or is there more to this then is getting let on

Wary of secret service agents, nosey journalists and even greedy gamblers spying on the conclave's deliberations, the Vatican has hired espionage experts to inspect the Sistine Chapel for hidden microphones and spy cameras.


Got to follow the money on this one. The gambler could make some money (what are the odds in Vegas on Papal election, BTW?
), the media outlet with the "ins" on the story would selling millions/billions of dollars of advertising and papers/magazines. Secret service wants to know, so they can start the snooping into the background, and expectations of leadership style, etc, etc. Probably hasn't happened too often before in Papal elections, but I thinks it a good idea.

Yes follow the money ....but does a high ranking official think scooping this story is worth getting deflocked and excommunicated over if so they should not hold the position in the first place.


I feel for the Catholic church for all the follies of the last year no wait 21 years at last conviction of a church official for his crimes and this is just another thing that sadens me further....I am not a Catholic but I would hope that Catholics understand me when I say I will honestly pray for a peace from your church's tribulations and hope for the reform of the church to a point where they should be and not meired in the pain of contraversial actions by those in authority.

The conclave that votes for the pope is suppsed to be kept secret. A hundred years ago that meant closing the doors and windows. Today it means sweeping for bugs.
