Vatican appeal for release of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram
Catholic World News - May 08, 2014
The Vatican has issued an appeal for the release of the Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by the Islamist terrorist organization Boko Haram.
“The denial of any kind of respect for life and for the dignity of the human person, even the most innocent, vulnerable and defenseless, calls for the strongest condemnation, arouses the most heartfelt feelings of compassion for the victims and instills a sense of horror for the physical and spiritual suffering and the incredible humiliation they have suffered,” said Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Holy See Press Office.
