"Pope Francis has called on Pakistan to protect Christians and the country’s other religious minorities after a Taliban faction targeted worshippers celebrating Easter. The Argentine pontiff denounced the 'vile and senseless' suicide bombing in a public park in Lahore on Sunday, in which at least 70 people were killed, in an address to the faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square on Monday. Francis appealed to the Pakistani 'civil authorities and all community leaders ... to do everything possible to ensure the security and serenity of the population, particularly the most vulnerable religious minorities.'"
