A little girl was caught on camera stealing the Pope's skullcap as she gives him a kiss.
The video was shot by the girl's Godfather with the caption: 'Took my Goddaughter to meet the pope. She stole his hat.'
Pope Francis scrambles for the hat, but is all smiles as he re-adjusts his uniform and the girl, named Shirley, is carried away.
The huge crowd erupted into laughter after the girl's sneaky swipe.
It is not the first time he has lost his headwear to a curious child.
As the pontiff held a youngster in his arms while visiting a medical centre back in 2013, the cheeky child took off his white zucchetto at the Vatican.
For a moment, it looked like the cap-snatcher had an amazing souvenir - but, with a smile, the leader of the Catholic Church retrieved his headwear and returned it to its rightful place.
The evil that people perpetrate on others is just unbelievable. A woman was getting off the bus in East London, when an unknown attacker dressed in all black approached her and poured acid on her face.
The 20yr old victim, Naomi Oni, said she didn’t see who the attacker was and doesn’t know why someone would pour acid on her.
She received burns to her face, eyes, ears, lips, and tongue. When she saw her injuries, she said she didn’t want to live any more. But after going thru so much operations and getting some of her features back, she is now determined to live.
She is a survivor and she says her attacker failed. May God bless and her and grant her a speedy recovery. The attacker is still at large. Any information about the attack should be reported to the East London Police
