Pope Francis urges action to save migrants in North African deserts

Pope Francis appeals to world leaders to come to the emergency assistance of migrants trapped in the deserts of North Africa, while also recalling the extreme climatic events and the need to address global warming.

By Thaddeus Jones

After leading the recitation of the Angelus prayer on Sunday, Pope Francis spoke of the worsening tragic situation affecting migrants in the northern part of Africa where thousands are suffering terribly due to being trapped or abandoned in the desert for weeks.

"I appeal, in particular to the European and African Heads of State and Government, for urgent relief and assistance to these brothers and sisters," he said. "May the Mediterranean never again be a theatre of death and inhumanity. May the Lord enlighten the minds and hearts of all, arousing feelings of fraternity, solidarity, and welcome."
