VATICAN CITY (AP) -- The arrest of the pope's butler hasn't ended the chaos at the Vatican over leaked documents revealing evidence of internal power struggles, intrigue and corruption in the highest levels of the Catholic Church governance.

The Holy See's investigation continues into the embarrassing scandal as the detention of butler Paolo Gabriele capped one of the most convulsive weeks in recent Vatican history.

The scandal comes at a critical phase in its efforts to show the world it's serious about complying with international norms on financial transparency by the Vatican bank.

Vatican documents leaked to the media in recent months have undermined that effort, alleging corruption in Vatican finance as well as internal bickering over the Holy See's efforts to comply with international norms to fight money laundering and terror financing.
