Pope John Paul II relic stolen: Italian police
Rome: Police say a vial containing the blood of the late Pope John Paul II has been stolen from a priest in Italy but recovered by authorities several hours later.
The theft occurred Tuesday aboard a train where the priest was carrying the vial from Rome to a suburb where the relic was to be put on display for admirers of the pontiff, who died in 2005.
Railway police said they would give details later about how they recovered the vial.
John Paul`s relics have gone on display in several parts of the world.
The Vatican has put the Polish-born pontiff on the road to possible sainthood.
