Pope Francis's duel with the Knights of Malta intensified Tuesday as he backed an investigation into the ancient order, which has questioned the legitimacy and make-up of the panel carrying out the probe. In a condom-related spat that is seen by some as a proxy war between liberals and conservatives in the Catholic church, Francis last month appointed a five-strong team to examine recent turmoil at the Order, a Church-linked charity body descended from the crusading knights of the Middle Ages. The Knights' hierarchy is currently refusing to cooperate with the probe.
