Pope carries out exorcism in public

Pope Francis appears to have performed an exorcism on a wheelchair-bound man who believers claim was possessed by evil.

The act was carried out in St Peter's Square after Mass on Sunday, according to a religious TV channel.

The channel reported that Pope Francis placed his hands on the young man's head for 15 seconds.

The pilgrim convulsed briefly and emitted a long sigh before his body went limp and his mouth fell open.
