Pope seeks end to bombing in Libya

Catholic World News - March 28, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI said that he is “becoming progressively more concerned about the welfare and safety of civilians” as a NATO bombing campaign continues.

As he concluded his regular public audience on March 27, the Pope made “a heartfelt appeal to international organizations and to political and military leaders for the immediate launch of a dialogue that will halt the use of arms.”

The Pope reiterated that he is praying for peace in Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East, “where various episodes of violence have taken place over recent days.”
