"On Tuesday, at 06.25, Moscow time the "02" panel of the police service on duty received information from the staff workers of the Iraqi diplomatic mission that a huge sum of money was stolen," Mazurin reported.
"According to claimants, three unidentified persons penetrated the embassy's territory, beat the guard, made him open the safe and stole about 3 million dollars and more than 100,000 euros," Mazurin pointed out.
According to him, at the present moment the investigation-operative group is working at the place. The robbers are being searched for.
The remarks from the Pope came as "a very strong step towards degradation," "given the rather massive nature of homosexuality" among the Catholic clergy.
