• Pope to plead for justice in Mexico visit: archbishop


    MEXICO CITY: Pope Francis will call for justice for victims of violence during his visit to Mexico and plead for a more humane treatment of migrants, the country’s archbishop said Thursday. Cardinal Norberto Rivera told AFP that while Francis may not meet privately with the parents of 43 missing students whose case caused international outrage, he will address the plight of all victims during his February 12-17 visit. The archbishop noted that more than 26,000 people are reported missing in the country. “I think it’s very important that the pope come to ask that citizens and those who govern speak the truth,” he said.
