Pope Francis urges return of refugees to Syria

Vatican City: Pope Francis urged politicians Sunday to make a new effort to resolve the Syrian conflict and so help ensure the return home of millions of refugees and displaced people.

It is “time for a renewed commitment for a political solution (to) … favour the secure re-entry of the homeless, along with all those who have taken refuge in neighbouring countries, especially Lebanon and Jordan,” Francis said in his traditional Easter Sunday address at the Vatican.
