A Living Hell Beneath Romania’s Capital. In a video companion to a written report filed last week, Britain’s Channel 4 News takes viewers beneath the streets of post-Communist Bucharest to a world inhabited by hundreds of men, women and children stricken by drug abuse, HIV and tuberculosis. 

 

Pope Francis Prays at Apartheid Wall, Calls for Palestinian State. Flanked by anxious Palestinian security guards, he walked over to the eight-metre (26-foot) high concrete barrier topped by a guard tower. Bowing his head in silent prayer, he paused for several minutes in front of the graffiti-daubed barrier, his right hand and forehead resting against the concrete. “Pope we need to see someone to speak about justice. Bethlehem look like Warsaw ghetto. Free Palestine,” read one bit of graffiti in English. Pilgrims said they hoped that Francis’s presence here could bring real change on the ground in a volatile region.
