CWN Editor's Note: On November 14, Pope Francis received Hazim Tahsin Beg, prince of the Yazidi religious sect since 2019.

The Islamic State launched a genocide of the sect’s members in 2019.

“”We will do our best and spare no efforts to assist you,” the Pope said (according to the prince). “We will put pressure on the international community, and they will put pressure on Iraq in order to resolve the problems” related to displaced Yazidis’ return to their homes.
