Vat­i­can un­veils Pope tour

Lesotho Times - - Africa -

VAT­I­CAN CITY — Pope Fran­cis (pic­tured) will tour a Kenyan slum, meet with Mus­lims and evan­gel­i­cal Chris­tians and visit a refugee camp in the con­flict-torn Cen­tral African Re­pub­lic dur­ing his first trip to Africa next month.

Fran­cis will also pay trib­ute to Uganda’s mar­tyrs dur­ing the Novem­ber 25-30 three­na­tion trip that will bring him face to face for the first time with the ef­fects of Is­lamic ex­trem­ism and Chris­tian-mus­lim vi­o­lence on the con­ti­nent.

The Vat­i­can on Satur­day un­veiled the itin­er­ary of the whirl­wind trip that will pose se­cu­rity risks that have largely been ab­sent on Fran­cis’ for­eign trips to date.
