Zimbabwe president in Vatican City despite travel ban

Mugabe sits beside EU delegation at papal inauguration

Vatican City, March 19 - Robert Mugabe and his wife were seated beside the delegation from the European Union, which has imposed travel sanctions on the Zimbabwean president for his human rights record, at the inaugural mass for Pope Francis in St Peter's Square on Tuesday. The travel ban does not apply to visiting Vatican City, a sovereign state, nor to trips for "religious obligations". Mugabe, a practicing Catholic, drew controversy when he attended John Paul II's funeral in 2005 and his beatification ceremony in 2011.
