Pope Francis Arrives Event In Wheelchair

Pope Francis used a wheelchair in public on Thursday for the first time since a new flare-up of pain in his knee has limited his ability to walk, reports say.

At an audience for a group of nuns, Francis was wheeled to his seat on the stage.

Since the latest flare up the past 2 months, he had been able to walk the some 10 metres (yards) from the side entrance of the stage to his seat at the centre, albeit with help from aides.
