Threat against Pope Francis broken up ahead of U.S. visit

- Thirteen days before the arrival of Pope Francis to Philadelphia and the Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security says there's been at least one threat.

'We are monitoring very closely threats against the pope as he comes into the United States,' said House Homeland Security Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul.

'We have disrupted one particular case, in particular but as that date approaches, I think we're all very vigilant to protect him as he comes in to the United States.'

The pope will visit Washington D.C., then New York and finish in Philadelphia. There was no word on where this threat was based.
