Pope performs mass for thousands in northern Iraq


Pope Francis performed a mass for 10,000 people in a stadium in Erbil, northern Iraq, on the final day of his historic visit to the country, in which Christians are an embattled minority. The Pope also visited towns which had been subjected to the rule of ISIL and urged a message of peaceful coexistence between religions.
