Palestinians in the West Bank city of Tulkarm set fire to a Christian church this morning as tension over the Pope’s comments continued to rise. In Egypt, meanwhile, the Muslim Brotherhood said it was satisfied by the pontiff’s response while others registered their protest in silence with a march through the capital, Cairo. Turkey’s government has welcomed the Pope’s statement saying it is now looking forward to his visit in November.
