Italian envoy prods EU on anti-Christian violence

Catholic World News - January 03, 2011

Italy's ambassador to the Holy See has said that "Europe could do more" to protect Christians from religious violence.

Speaking to the AGI news service after Pope Benedict XVI renewed his appeal for protection for Christian religious minorities, Francesco Greco agreed that the European Union should play a role. Greco confirmed the Pope's observation that Christians are the "most persecuted" religious group in the world, adding that while massacres in Baghdad and Cairo are in the headlines, the oppression is "not restricted to terrorist attacks."
