The Vatican on Friday rejected as "defamatory" claims that Pope Francis did not do enough in his past to save two priests kidnapped and tortured by the Argentinian military junta.

"There has never been a credible, concrete accusation against him. The Argentinian justice system... has never charged him with anything," Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said.
