The 80th Grand Master of the Sovereign Order of Malta, Frà Giacomo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto, has died in Rome.

He was elected in February 2018, one year after Pope Francis forced his predecessor to resign following an internal power struggle.

Foreign Affairs Minister Evarist Bartolo offered the Order his condolences on behalf of the Maltese government.
