Italian dies of meningitis after Poland pilgrimage

The Italian bishops' conference says a young Italian pilgrim died of meningitis after attending the World Youth Day event in Poland, and is urging anyone who used the same hospitality facilities to get vaccinated.

The conference said the girl, who came from Rome, died at a Vienna hospital as she traveled home from Poland. Pope Francis led several events at the Catholic youth jamboree in Krakow, which ended on Sunday.
