Easter: Pope calls for peace in Syria, end to violence in holy land
Pope Francis, in his Easter address this Sunday, called for peace in the Holy Land two days after 15 Palestinians were killed on the Israeli-Gaza border.
The catholic pontiff says the conflict there does not spare the defenceless, calling for a reconciliation in the Holy Land.
Francis begged for peace for the entire world, especially in Syria and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and wants an end to the acts of injustice in the world.
He also called for international assistance for Venezuela and hopes for dialogue to end the Korean standoff.
This is his sixth Easter celebration as the Roman Catholic leader.
