Holy See diplomat condemns terrorism in Africa

CWN - May 17, 2013

Addressing a recent United Nations Security Council discussion of terrorism in Africa, the Holy See’s leading representative at the UN recalled the recent terrorist attack on a Catholic church in Tanzania and called for a “greater commitment and action to safeguard life and uphold all fundamental human rights.”

“The unacceptable proliferation of terrorism – in all regions of the world and particularly in Africa – requires condemnation in the most absolute terms, since acts of terrorism strike at the very heart of human dignity and constitute an offence against all humanity,” said Archbishop Francis Chullikatt, apostolic nuncio and permanent observer of the Holy See at the United Nations. “The Holy See accordingly condemns the use of terrorism in all its forms and rejects, in particular, the manipulation of religion in an attempt to justify attacks against innocent human life.”
