The terror group ISIS has made a chilling threat against the Vatican just weeks before tens of thousands of faithful gather there to celebrate Christmas.
A pro ISIS propaganda channel made the threat in a poster depicting a car attack.
The poster reading “Christmas blood” depicts a masked jihadi driving a BMW towards St Peter’s Basilica, where Pope Francis holds mass.
An assault rifle and a rucksack are visible on the seat next to the driver, who is using a sat nav and driving at high speed.

Separate forces backed by the US and Russia are battling to retake the last remaining pockets of ISIS held territory in Syria.
Mr Mattis said the long term goal is to prevent the return of an “ISIS 2.0”.
He told reporters on Monday: “The enemy hasn’t declared that they’re done with the area yet, so we’ll keep fighting as long as they want to fight.”
US backed forces recently declared victory in the Syrian city of Raqqa, the terror group’s largest stronghold in the war torn country.
