A peace gesture at the Vatican went horribly wrong.

Tens of thousands of people were gathered in Vatican Square as Pope Francis and two children released two white doves, as part of a message of peace.

But one of the doves was attacked almost immediately by a seagull, and lost some of its feathers. The other was attacked by a crow.

The doves eventually managed to escape their attackers and fly away.

There’s been no sign of them since the attack.
