Pope expresses sorrow, Vatican condemns massacre in Syria
Catholic World News - May 29, 2012
Pope Benedict XVI has expressed his sorrow at the news of a massacre in the Syrian town of Houla, and a Vatican statement noted that international leaders have “expressed unanimous condemnation of the incident.”
At least 100 civilians died at Houla, prompting several nations to withdraw their ambassadors from Syria in protest. The Vatican statement renewed a call for negotiations to resolve the conflict between the government and rebels.
