Pope Francis calls for peace and dialogue with Muslim in Egypt
Text size Aa Aa

Pope Francis has arrived in Egypt for a visit aimed at promoting better ties between Muslim and Christian faith leaders.

He told a peace conference that dialogue is the only way to overcome Islamic militants who’ve persecuted Christians.

The trip takes places amid heavy security as it comes just three weeks after Islamic State militants killed at least 45 people in two Egyptian churches.

He’s due to celebrate an open air Mass on Saturday at a military arena.
