Pope Francis's Christmas message calls for an end to Syrian war

43 minutes ago

Pope Francis called for an end to the fighting in Syria in his Christmas address at the Vatican on Sunday, saying "far too much blood has been spilled" in the conflict.

He also urged Palestinians and Israelis to abandon hate and revenge.

He spoke in front of tens of thousands of Catholic pilgrims in St Peter's Square.

Heavy security was in place following last week's lorry attack in Berlin. The Pope also paid tribute to its victims.
