  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Pope joins Myanmar bishops’ appeal for humanitarian corridors” – below is their description.

    On Sunday, Pope Francis decried the suffering of refugees in Myanmar and pleaded that houses of worship be respected as neutral places to take shelter.

    He told the public gathered in St. Peter’s Square for his customary Sunday noon remarks that he was joining his voice to that of the Asian nation’s bishops in also calling for humanitarian corridors.

    Francis lamented that thousands of displaced people in Myanmar are “dying of hunger.” Violence, including ravaging of villages, has become endemic since the army seized power in February, ousting the elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi.

    A nonviolent civil disobedience movement is challenging military rule, but the junta’s attempt to repress it with deadly force has fueled resistance.
