Vatican theft trial adjourned until Tuesday

The Pope's former butler, who is on trial for theft of the pontiff's personal papers, saw his case adjourned until Tuesday.

The Vatican court trying him rejected a defence request to include the outcome of a separate "sensitive" investigation carried out by cardinals for the pope and ruled that the trial will be based only on an investigation by a Vatican prosecutor and Vatican police.
