Kill-pope threat real – PNP official

INTELLIGENCE reports about a possible attack on Pope Francis should not be taken lightly and authorities should not be complacent because if something happened, the Philippines could be the world’s “center of attraction” in January, according to a top Philippine National Police (PNP) official.

Speaking on condition that he should not be named for lack of authority to speak on the matter, the police official, who was instrumental in the identification and eventual capture of al-Qaeda terrorist Ramzi Yousef in the 1990s, said his long experience as a police investigator handling such sensitive cases requires him to “respect” intelligence reports about a possible plot to harm the pope by those who have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The pontiff will be in the Philippines from January 15 to 19 next year.

“My gut feel, and I have always trusted my instincts in matters such as this, is that they [terrorists] might try it again. Therefore, nobody should take this [threat] lightly and be complacent. We don’t want to be blamed if anything wrong happens,” said the source, who traced Yousef’s footsteps from the Josefa Apartments that was gutted by fire in Manila to the Philippine Airlines flight to Japan that was rocked by an explosion, around the time of Pope John Paul II’s visit in 1995.

“They tried it before. They might give it another shot,” he added.

Chronological list of popes murdered


Stephen VI (896–897):  Strangled

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6a/Stephen_VI.jpg)

Pope Stephen VI (Latin: Stephanus VI; died August 897) was Pope from 22 May 896 to his death in 897.

He had been made bishop of Anagni by Pope Formosus. The circumstances of his election are unclear, but he was sponsored by one of the powerful Roman families, the house of Spoleto, that contested the papacy at the time.
Jean-Paul Laurens, Le Pape Formose et Étienne VII ("Pope Formosus and Stephen VII"), 1870. Note the latter is now called Pope Stephen VI.

Stephen is chiefly remembered in connection with his conduct towards the remains of Pope Formosus, his last predecessor but one. The rotting corpse of Formosus was exhumed and put on trial in the so-called Cadaver Synod (or Synodus Horrenda) in January 897. Pressure from the Spoleto contingent and Stephen's fury with his predecessor probably precipitated this extraordinary event. With the corpse propped up on a throne, a deacon was appointed to answer for the deceased pontiff. During the trial, Formosus's corpse was condemned for performing the functions of a bishop when he had been deposed and for receiving the pontificate while he was the bishop of Porto, among other revived charges that had been levelled against him in the strife during the pontificate of John VIII. The corpse was found guilty, stripped of its sacred vestments, deprived of three fingers of its right hand (the blessing fingers), clad in the garb of a layman, and quickly buried; it was then re-exhumed and thrown in the Tiber. All ordinations performed by Formosus were annulled.

The trial excited a tumult. Though the instigators of the deed may actually have been Formosus' enemies of the House of Spoleto (notably Guy IV of Spoleto), who had recovered their authority in Rome at the beginning of 897 by renouncing their broader claims in central Italy, the scandal ended in Stephen's imprisonment and his death by strangling that summer.

Stephen VIII/(IX) (939–942): Mutilated

The maiming of Stephen may have occurred in the aftermath of the conspiracy against Alberic in the middle of 942.

Tungod sa Synodus Horrenda
Ranggo isip Santo Papa
Ni Stephanus napornada;
Samtang siya naghinuktok
Gisikop siya ug hinok
Nga gibaklid unya giluok.
