Pope Benedict Appeals For Hostage Safety, Release

“The Holy Father, sharing the concern of the families, and of everyone worried about the safety of the three Red Cross workers kidnapped on the island of Jolo in the Philippines, wishes to raise his voice and make an appeal that humanitarian values and reason may prevail over violence and intimidation.

“The Holy Father, in the name of God, asks for the hostages to be released and calls upon the authorities to favor a peaceful solution to the dramatic situation”.
