Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Pope Francis urges Iraq’s Muslims, Christians to unite for peace” – below is their description.
Pope Francis has urged Iraq’s Muslim and Christian religious leaders to put aside animosities and work together for peace and unity during an interfaith meeting in the traditional birthplace of the Prophet Abraham, father of their faiths.
The city of Ur is a place of historic importance for Christians and Muslims.
And as Al Jazeera’s Simona Foltyn reports, the pope’s visit will cast the lime light on a site that has had few visitors in decades of war and instability.
