Catholic splinter group ordains 8 new priests

A conservative Roman Catholic splinter group has ordained eight new priests despite a Vatican warning that they won't be considered legitimate.
The Switzerland-based Society of St. Pius X says the seven Frenchmen and one Swiss were ordained Monday in the southern town of Econe.
The group ordained three priests in Germany on Saturday and 13 in Winona, Minnesota, the previous weekend.
The Vatican says the group has no status within the Catholic church and any of its ordinations "must be considered illegitimate."
