Head of Vatican bank is ousted

The Vatican has said the head of its bank, who is being investigated in a money laundering case, has been ousted after receiving a unanimous vote of no-confidence from bank overseers.

Ettore Gotti Tedeschi has been a polarising figure in the Vatican.

Yesterday, the Holy See said the vote was taken because of Mr Tedeschi's failure to fulfil the "primary functions of his office".
