After his Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis turned his thoughts and prayers to “the dramatic situation in Libya”, which he said he is following “with great apprehension and sorrow”.

The Pope urged the international community and all those who have political and military responsibilities “to recommence with conviction and resolve the search for a path towards an end to the violence, leading to peace, stability and unity in the country”.

Pope Francis also prayed for the “thousands of migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced persons in Libya”.  He noted that the current health situation has aggravated the “already precarious conditions in which they find themselves, making them more vulnerable to forms of exploitation and violence. There is cruelty”, he said.
