OTD November 27 - Pope Paul VI
19 / 48
Vatican City

1970: Pope Paul VI suffers a slight chest wound during an assassination attempt at Manila International Airport in the Philippines by dagger-wielding Bolivian painter Benjamin Mendoza Y Amor, who was disguised as a priest. The painter, who shouted "death to superstition" before he was wrestled to the ground, would serve a four-year prison sentence for attempted murder.
