The Vatican Secretariat for Communication, which had come under sharp criticism all week for blurring part of a photograph of the letter and for withholding another section, said in a statement there had been "no intent of censorship". It said the letter, written for the presentation of a Vatican-published 11-booklet series on the theology of Pope Francis, was private and therefore officials had cited only the "opportune and...

Mr Seehofer's controversial remarks echoed last year's election slogans from the nationalist Alternative for Germany party (AfD), which campaigned on an anti-Muslim platform. But...
