Francis Asks For Halt To Violence In Central African Republic

Vatican City, 27 March 2013 (VIS) - After the catechesis of this morning's General Audience, the Holy Father called for an immediate end to the violence in the Central African Republic.

"I am attentively following what has been happening in these hours in the Central African Republic and I wish to ensure all those who are suffering—especially the relatives of the victims, the wounded, and those who have lost their homes and been forced to flee—of my prayers. I call for an immediate halt to the violence and looting, and that a political solution to the crisis may be reached as soon as possible so that peace and harmony may be restored in that dear country, which has, for too long, been marked by conflict and division."
