Pope Francis expressed hope Sunday for a peaceful solution to the crisis in Niger following the military coup in the West African nation.
The pontiff told the faithful in St. Peter’s Square that he is following events with concern, joining an appeal “for peace in the country and stability in the Sahel region.” He called on the international community “to find a peaceful solution as soon as possible, for the good of all.”
