Pope Francis expressed "great apprehension and sorrow" Sunday after eight mass graves were discovered in Libya amid the ongoing civil war.
"I urge international bodies and those who have political and military responsibilities to recommence with conviction and resolve the search for a path towards an end to the violence, leading to peace, stability and unity in the country," Pope Francis said in his Angelus address June 14.
The United Nations announced this week the discovery of at least eight Mass graves in Tarhuna, Libya, 62 miles southeast of the capital in Tripoli.
"I am following the dramatic situation in Libya with great apprehension and sorrow. It has been present in my prayer in recent days," the pope said.
