VATICAN CITY — Pope emeritus Benedict XVI returned by helicopter to the Vatican on Thursday two months after his historic resignation to live in a former monastery, Italian media said.

The former pontiff, who is 86 and was looking extremely frail in his last public appearance in March, will live just a stone’s throw away from his successor Pope Francis.
