    Yes, I heard it last night.

    From what I read, this is her SECOND attempt at the pope; she was injured the last time she tried.

    As it turned out, the woman who did this tried the same thing last year. The vatican released a statement saying something to the effect of while they will review security procedures, they have no plans on limiting public exposure of the Pope. Thankfully, there weren't any more, or more severe, injuries.

    I saw this on the news. What is her reasoning for attacking the Pope?>

    Reason? Craziness....

    My friend was in Rome this summer and was at a mass where the Pope officiated....someone left an unattended handbag in an empty pew and the security came, unscrewed the entire pew and took it out.

    The lady was wearing the same red sweatshirt she wore last year when she tried to tackle him!
