The house in the Bavarian town of Marktl am Inn where Pope Benedict XVI was born has been vandalised just three days before his 83rd birthday, local authorities reported on Tuesday.
A police spokesperson said the words daubed on the house were of "insulting content," adding that they referred to the child abuse affair that has rocked the Church in Germany in recent months.
Police refused to reveal the exact words painted on the building in blue, which a passerby noticed on Tuesday morning. The words were quickly covered over.
