VATICAN CITY, March 13 (Reuters) – Pope
Benedict is “profoundly moved and saddened” by the death of Paulos
Faraj Rahho, the Chaldean Catholic archbishop in Iraq who was kidnapped
last month, a Vatican spokesman said on Thursday.
“All of us had continued to pray and hope for his release, which the
Pope had repeatedly urged,” Father Federico Lombardi said in a
statement shortly after news of the death.
