The family of outgoing Prime Minister Joseph Muscat this morning met Pope Francis at the Vatican in a private visit.

The Department of Information described it as “a last private visit” as Muscat is to resign in January.

The visit was supposed to be official but it was later relegated to a private occasion after the PM announced his resignation in the wake of his office’s involvement in the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.
