The Vatican announces that the 82-year-old Pope Pius XII is suffering from a "slight indisposition" and has been advised by doctors to cut back on his work load. He'll be dead in a little more than a week.

Riccardo Galeazzi-List, head of the Vatican's Medical Department and the pope's chief physician, will be expelled from the Vatican later this month after it's discovered that he has started selling private medical information about Pope Pius XII.
