And finally… tunnel vision

A man rescued from a collapsed makeshift tunnel near the Vatican has been arrested on suspicion of attempting an elaborate bank heist.

Italian police believe that the man and three others were attempting to dig a tunnel into a nearby bank, the BBC reports.

It took eight hours for firefighters and a construction crew to rescue the trapped man by uprooting a road. He remains in hospital.

The entrance to the tunnel was built in an empty, rented shop located near two banks.

Four men have been arrested so far and investigations are continuing.
