Pope Francis prayed Sunday for the victims of the airstrike that hit a migrant detention center in Libya, and called upon the international community to condemn the violence.
"I invite you to pray for the poor defenseless people killed or wounded by the airstrike," Pope Francis said in his Angelus address July 7.
"The international community cannot tolerate such serious facts," the pope said.
At least 53 people died and more than 130 others were injured in the attack July 3 on the Tajoura refugee camp and detention center east of Tripoli.
