Shake up at the Vatican

The newly installed Pope Francis has announced his intention to make significant changes in the management of the Roman Catholic Church.

He is to create a panel of eight cardinals from across the globe to advise him. Each of the cardinals is reported to have a history of reform and have been critical of the status quo within the Church.

According to one historian out is the "most important step in the history of the church for the past 10 centuries".
