He wrote: "Deeply saddened to learn of the cruel acts of violence and disrespect for law and human life perpetrated in the city of Amman, the Holy Father sends heartfelt condolences to Your Majesty, to the families of the deceased and to the entire nation. Remembering the victims and injured in his prayers, the Holy Father invokes the divine gifts of consolation upon those who mourn, and unfailing courage upon all who work for lasting peace and respect for human rights in the Middle East."
