Pope urges global unity on crises

The head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, has told the UN in New York that member states should solve the world’s crises together.

Benedict XVI, the third pope to address the UN, said the world was still subject to “the decisions of a few”, without naming countries. He urged states to protect their people from “grave and sustained” human rights abuses or face outside intervention.

The Pope later visited a synagogue as part of his six-day US tour. Pope Benedict visited Park East synagogue, just hours before the start of the Jewish Passover, becoming the first leader of the Roman Catholic church to visit a Jewish place of worship in the US.

His agenda in New York, his last stop before returning to Rome, also includes visiting Ground Zero and celebrating Mass at Yankee Stadium.

Pity his says that in the country that became an example of exactly the opposite!
