Vatican overhauls scandal-hit bank

Extensive reforms of the scandal-hit Vatican bank have been announced with the entire senior management team being replaced.

Pope Francis has sought to stamp out corruption and other abuses at the bank, which handles the Church's funds.

The bank will also eventually give up its investment activities to focus on serving religious orders and charities.
