Pope Francis is evicting US Cardinal Raymond Burke, an outspoken critic, from his Vatican apartment and revoking his salary.

Cardinal Burke is part of a group of American conservatives who have long opposed the Pope's plans for reforming the Catholic Church.

A Vatican source told the BBC that Pope Francis has not yet carried out his intention to evict the 75-year-old.

And the decision is not meant as a personal punishment, the source added.

Instead, it comes from the belief that a person should not enjoy cardinal privileges while criticising the head of the church.

Still, the move is "unprecedented in the Francis era", Christopher White, a Vatican observer who writes for the National Catholic Reporter, told the BBC.
