Pope Francis has condemned the ‘terrible massacre’ in Kabul.

During his Angelus address, the Pope told the faithful in St. Peter’s Square that he expresses his condolences to the loved ones of the victims of the terrorist attack in the Afghan city of Kabul.

Yesterday from Afghanistan came the painful news of the terrible terrorist massacre carried out in the capital Kabul, with more than a hundred dead and numerous wounded.

A few days ago another serious attack, always in Kabul, the Pontiff lamented, sowed terror and death in a large hotel.

“How long will the Afghan people have to endure this inhumane violence?” he said.

Pope Francis called on those gathered to join him in praying in silence for all the victims and their families, adding, we pray for those in that country who continue to work toward building peace.
