Pope Laments “Persecutions” Of Rohingya Muslims In Myanmar
The pontiff said Sunday there was “sad news about the persecution of the religious minority of our Rohingya brothers.”
Thousands of Rohingya are trying to flee into Bangladesh after escalated deadly violence at home. Last week, Rohingya militants attacked police and border outposts, and security forces responded.
Francis asked the faithful in St. Peter’s Square to pray that God “saves them” and they receive help.
