Expresses ‘disbelief’ over Iraq violence

10 Aug, 2014

During his weekly blessing in St. Peter’s Square, Francis says what is happening in Iraq “leaves us in disbelief.” He urges the international community to find a political solution “to stop these crimes.” He specifically cites:

the thousands of people, including Christians, who have been brutally forced from their homes, children who have died from thirst during the escape and women who have been seized.
