A Vatican court convicts two of the three officials who leaked confidential documents and clears the two journalists who published them, in a verdict on the so-called VatiLeaks 2 trial.
Reporters Gianluigi Nuzzi and Emiliano Fittipaldi, both Italian citizens, are spared from a conviction because judges concluded that they had no jurisdiction over them.
Spanish priest Monsignor Lucio Vallejo Balda is sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment and Italian PR consultant Francesca Immacolata Chaouqui receives a suspended jail time of 10 months.
Both Balda and Chaoqui sat on a Vatican reform committee whose papers were leaked and used by Nuzzi and Fittipaldi to publish books dishing the dirt on Vatican financial affairs.
A fifth defendant, Nicola Maio, is acquitted. He served as an aide to Balda.
