The Vatican has clarified Pope Benedict’s new stance on the use of condoms to help prevent the transmission of the Aids virus, November 2010, explaining the pontiff believed that all those infected with the disease were morally justified in taking precautions to protect their partners.

Aids campaigners greeted what they saw as a significant shift in the Pope’s personal views that could lead to a landmark change in Roman Catholic policy.
