Homemade Bomb Found Near Pope’s Scheduled Visit Site in Brazil

July 23, 2013

A homemade bomb has been found near a popular Brazilian shrine ahead of Pope Francis’s visit.

The explosive was discovered in a lavatory inside the National Sanctuary of Aparecida, which is located between Rio de Janerio and Sao Paolo.

Francis, 76, is scheduled to visit the place later in the week as part of his Brazilian trip.

“It was a homemade device with little potential to cause fatalities. Such episodes formed part of our security forces’ training in Aparecida and at no point were civilians’ lives in danger,” the Brazilian military said a statement.

The device could be compared to dynamite with a fuse and was discovered during a routine security check, said officials.
