Vatican sells London building at heart of corruption trial to Bain Capital

VATICAN CITY, July 1 (Reuters) - The Vatican said on Friday it had sold the London building at the centre of an ongoing corruption trial to Bain Capital in recent days for 186 million pounds ($223.6 million).

Losses from the deal were covered by Vatican reserve funds, the Vatican said in a statement, adding that donations from the faithful had not been used.

The Vatican signed the contract to sell the luxury building, on Sloane Avenue in Chelsea, London in January.
