Pope slams governments who close doors to migrants

23 hours ago

Vatican City (AFP) - Pope Francis on Wednesday criticised governments who close their doors to migrants in comments that came as the European Union seeks to shut the Balkan route into its territory.

The leader of the world's Roman Catholics called for a more compassionate approach to "people living through a real and dramatic exile, far from their countries, with the ruins of their own homes still in their eyes, fear in their hearts and often suffering from the loss of people dear to them.

"How is it possible that so much suffering can be inflicted on men, women and innocent children," the pope said at his weekly audience in St Peter's Square.

These people "are there, at frontiers because so many doors and so many hearts are closed".
