Pope deplores Cotabato attack

Pope Benedict XVI deplored the attack in front of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Cotabato.

It is suspected that the attack, killing 5 (including a 3 year old child) and wounding 45, is the work of the rebel Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

Archbishop Orlando Quevedo declared - rightly - that the attack is “not only a crime, but a sacrilege." The Pope, on the other hand, condemned "the use of violence, which is never a way of solving problems."
