Italian police dressed as priests have ensnared two would-be blackmailers who were threatening to publish wiretaps of an erotic conversation with a clergyman, local media reported.

Police in the Lombardy region of northern Italy donned priestly garb late on Saturday to trap two Romanian men in the town of Lomellina who were trying to get the local church to pay them €250,000 not to hand the tape over to the media.

The recording allegedly captures an unnamed local priest having an erotic conversation with one of the two men, the reports said.
