Pope condemns 'unheard of violence' in Gaza

 Pope Benedict yesterday condemned the "unheard of violence" that has killed hundreds of "innocent victims".

Speaking to pilgrims attending the Angelus, Pope Benedict asked pilgrims in St Peter's Square and people around the world, to pray for the success of all efforts "to end the tragedy" and bring about lasting peace.

He said: "Let us remember to the Lord today the hundreds of children, elderly, women who have fallen as innocent victims of unheard of violence, (as well as) the wounded, those who are mourning their loved ones and who have lost their possessions."
