Harare - Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe will attend this
week's inauguration mass for Pope Francis, a presidential source said, with the
staunchly Catholic leader set to leave for Rome on Sunday.
"Yes he is attending," the official told AFP,
adding the veteran leader's trip will not be affected by the European Union
travel ban because "the Vatican is a state on its own".
